It’s almost Labor Day! Labor Day weekend feels like summer’s last hurrah. School is starting and the days are getting shorter. Soon the leaves will change, and we’ll be talking about the holidays!
I’ll be working all Labor Day weekend this year, but we’re having a delayed celebration with a vacation to Glacier Country in Montana for some much-needed R&R. I’ve never been to Montana before! Any recs for us while we’re there?
Pure Leaf Iced Tea just released their Tea House Collection, and I’ve really been loving them. They have three different blends that feature organic black tea and a hint of fruit or herb flavors. Pure Leaf Tea House teas are USDA Organic Certified and Rainforest Alliance Certified. There are only 50 calories per 8 ounces, and 90 calories per bottle. The teas come in Wild Blackberry & Sage, Fuji Apple & Ginger and Sicilian Lemon & Honeysuckle flavors.
Their wild blackberry & sage flavor inspired me to create a cocktail recipe. I paired it with gin and Lo-Fi vermouth for a fun cocktail that is perfect for the transition from summer to fall. It’s slightly fragrant and super smooth. Enjoy it this Labor Day weekend celebration and over the coming months.
