Too early to think about the holidays? Perhaps. But with Thanksgiving just weeks away, we thought a festive cocktail might help ease you into the season.
The Boulder-based, wildly successful tea company Celestial Seasonings has been creating tea-infused holiday cocktail recipes for years. The creative team sometimes spends weeks—we’re talking serious, laborious work here—finessing and perfecting the combinations. Of the many recipes available, my favorite is the Sweet Harvest Pumpkin Swizzle. It’s an ode to the season of pumpkin, and it will undoubtedly soothe your sweet tooth. Even better, it allegedly contains 100 fewer calories than a grande Starbucks pumpkin spice latte (which I might note, doesn't have any alcohol in it).
