I first made this cocktail for a fabulous friends fabulous party around Christmas time. She invited everyone to bring a cocktail and the accompanying recipe, she put out little bites and small sampler cups, and it was such a great blend of personalities, drinks, people and food.
The tea, honey and fresh juices seemed like the perfect combination to ward off the end of winter illness, but I have found it is also an excellent mix for the summer sense of well being.
