Pink Party Coolers & Pink Party Sparklers
This iced tea cooler & tea cocktail were recently created for the baby girl shower of one of our own. Both drinks were perfectly pink, caffeine-free, and a huge hit at the party!
INGREDIENTS: ½ cup SWEET MELODY tea leaves; 1 gallon water (tap or filtered); 2 TBS Fresh Grated Lemon Zest (~3 lemons); 2 TBS Fresh Grated Ginger Root; 1/4 Cup Agave or Simple Syrup, as desired; 5 bottles of Champagne (for alcoholic tea sparklers), or 4 Liters of Ginger Ale (for non-alcoholic tea sparklers); Ice (for non-alcoholic tea coolers).
PREPARATION: Make 1 gallon of tea by adding the tea leaves to 1 gallon of boiling water in a large pot, steeping for 5-7 minutes. Strain tea leaves out, add sweetener to hot tea (agave or simple syrup), and chill in fridge for at least 3 hours (or overnight). Add lemon zest & ginger root garnishes to the tea, and stir to mix. Serve the chilled tea over ice to make alcohol-free "tea coolers". Or pour the chilled tea into a flute 1/2-filled with Champagne or Ginger Ale for the "tea sparkler" version. Both are divine! Yields: 1 gallon of iced tea (~18 tea coolers) or 2 gallons of cocktails (~36 tea sparklers).
Sweet Melody Spritzer
Tangy hibiscus and sweet licorice pair perfectly with a floral gin, and lemon soda water adds a lovely bubbly sensation.

Strain tea leaves out, and chill in fridge for at least 3 hours (or overnight). Add all remaining ingredients and pour over ice. Enjoy! Yields: 1 Sweet Melody Spritzer.
