My Mocktail Christmas Flair

Being 37 Weeks pregnant and watching everyone drink these beautiful alcoholic concoctions has inspired me to make my own Mocktail today to flair up this evening's festivities. Enjoy! Inspired from

Cranberry Green Tea Mocktail

4 cups water
6 family size green iced tea bags
1 cinnamon stick
1 piece of fresh ginger
1.5 cups of brown sugar
2.5 cups of apple cider
2.5 cups of cranberry juice
1 orange sliced

1. In a sauce pan, heat water to boiling over medium-high heat. Remove saucepan from heat. Add tea bags, cinnamon stick, ginger, and brown sugar; steam for 10-12 minutes or until tea is very strong. Discard tea gas.

2. Stir in apple cider and cranberry juice. Cook over medium heat for 5 minutes. Remove cinnamon stick and ginger. Serve tea warm in mugs garnished with orange slices. Makes about 8 cups. Tea can be made 1 day in advance just before serving.
