Gameday Entertaining: Tennessee Lemon Drop Tea

November 14, 2017 by Jenny

It’s getting chilly out there, and we can’t wait for Thursday night football on the couch, with a fuzzy blanket, warm drink, and the Tennessee Titans vs. Pittsburgh Steelers.

For Tennessee Titan fans, we found the perfect winter recipe: Tennessee Lemon Drop Tea. For non Tennessee Titan fans, you’ll still love the healing powers of this cocktail that can be made alcoholic or non alcoholic.

Makes 1 quart

1/2 cup honey (agave for vegans)
4 cups water
1 lemon, zested and sliced
1-2 cinnamon sticks
Vodka, to taste
You might also like to add fresh ginger or other spices… this can be done to taste.

In a medium pot, add honey, lemon zest and cinnamon stick. Stir to combine, cover and bring to a simmer. Simmer 30-45 minutes, or until the cinnamon flavor fully infuses the drink and your house. Pour into a crystal goblet or your favorite Tennessee Titan mug, and if you need a little kick add vodka to taste.
