BERRY HARVEST MARGARITA

This margarita featuring teAlchemy’s Cherry Rose Rooibos syrup is the perfect sweet fix. A great choice for cold stormy nights.

DISARONNO LOVES SOUR

While it is logically counterintuitive to feel warmer sipping a cool drink.

  • 40ml Disaronno

  • 15ml lemon juice

  • 7 muddled cranberries

  • Shake the ingredients and strain into a flute with no ice

  • Top with champagne

SKINNY TIA MARIA WHITE RUSSIAN

Don't you just picture snowy steps and vodka whenever someone says the word Russia? If so 'Skinny Tia Maria White Russian' is definitley the drink for you. Make peace with the cold this winter with a bit of wintertime vodka and vacation in a glass.

Ingredients & Preparation:

  • 1 part Tia Maria

  • 1 ½ part vodka

  • 2 parts skimmed milk

  • Dark chocolate shavings for garnish
