More than just cocktails stripped of their alcohol a well-made mocktail has all of the fun and flavor of sipping a cocktail, without a headache the next morning.
One of my favorite winter drinks is a hot toddy but sometimes I don’t want or need the booze. But I also want more than just a cup of tea so I came up with this magical mocktail that hits the spot whether I’m curled up with my wife and a movie or havin’ a few friends over!
Like a warm hug, this toddy combines tasty herbal tea, organic juice, and calming, adaptogenic herbs that you can enjoy sipping all season long!
2.5 oz filtered water
2.5 oz organic apple cider
Chai or other spiced tea (loose or in a tea bag)
1 dropper full China Rose Wellness Adapt Vitality Elixir
1 dropper full of China Rose Wellness Damiana tincture
Cinnamon stick, dehydrated orange wheel, or other garnish (optional)
Mix apple cider with water and bring to a simmer on the stove. Remove from heat, add tea, & steep for 3-5 minutes. Remove steeping bag/ball, add herbal tinctures, and move to a fancy mug or toddy glass. Garnish & enjoy!
For a cold version let cool and shake with ice and serve up in a fancy crystal coupe or sub sparkling apple cider and serve on the rocks. Get creative and come up with your own mocktail blend! These herbs work well with many flavor profiles : )
