Holiday season is here, it is festive and happiest time of the year. Holidays are for food, family, fun, a warm fire, snowfall, scarves, presents, and parties. In this part of Texas, we rarely get a snowfall but the rest of the ingredients for a holiday season are present. If you are planning a holiday party, I have a festive and delicious drink for you and your family, the Holiday Tea Sangria, made with Milo’s Tea.
We are a family who loves to drink Tea and our day starts with a Tea and ends the day with tea and Milo’s Tea is a family favorite. Also, when it comes to parties I like Sangria as it is one of my favorite drinks. I make this delicious Holiday Tea Sangria which is a non-alcoholic sangria. This mocktail is perfect for everybody including people who don’t drink. You want to make every holiday get-together a memorable one with food and fun and create memories.
Do you know Milo’s Tea is freshly brewed, and features natural ingredients with no preservatives or added acids, Milo’s Tea is available sweetened with pure cane sugar, no calorie and unsweet options, as well as lemonade, and a tea and lemonade mix. Here is the little the history of Milo’ Tea. Milo’s Tea Company is a family owned, certified woman owned business located in Bessemer, AL. Milo’s was founded as a restaurant in 1946 by Milo and Bea Carlton after Milo returned from serving his country in World War II. Milo’s philosophy was simple – use high quality, fresh, natural ingredients, listen to the customers and never sacrifice taste. In 1989, Milo’s began selling their fresh brewed Famous Sweet Tea to local Birmingham grocery stores and now Milo’s beverages can be found in thousands of retailers across the United States.
For making this delicious holiday drink you need to buy Milo’s tea. I used sweetened tea with pure cane sugar for the recipe. I found Milo’s at my local Walmart in the refrigerated juice and dairy section but they are available at lots of retailers. Find a store near you by using the store locator.
Once you bought the Milo’s tea then making this holiday tea sangria is very easy. You need chopped up apple, thin slices of lemon, lime, orange, fresh cranberries, freshly squeezed orange juice and pomegranate juice. This is the best seasonal drink with tea, orange juice and pomegranate juice. Citrus and tea always goes hand in hand. I didn’t add any extra sugar.
You can make this drink a day before the party and serve with your signature holiday recipes. Trust me your guests will going love this. Why don’t a start a new tradition of making this holiday tea sangria for this coming holiday get together.
