Cinnamon and Orange Infused Spiked Iced Tea


Fall is in the air! I've been loving indulging in pumpkin-flavored everything and watching Hocus Pocus every night. I've also enjoyed coming up with some new, seasonal cocktail recipes for the coming cold months!


One that Seri suggested to me is this delicious Orange and Cinnamon Infused Iced Tea, which can be enjoyed with or without the alcohol added. I of course added the alcohol to this recipe, but it is just as good without!


Here's what you need: -orange-flavored vodka -iced tea -fresh oranges -cinnamon sticks -ice

Here's what to do: 1) Combine 1/2 gallon of iced tea into a pitcher with ice and 1/2 cup of orange-flavored vodka. 2) Squeeze the juice of 1 orange into the pitcher and stir.  Add some fresh orange slices to pitcher without juicing them. 3) Add 4 cinnamon sticks to pitcher. 4) Cover pitcher and refrigerate for at least one hour.  When it is done refrigerating, uncover and add some more ice cubes. Serve, and enjoy!


This iced tea is an awesome cocktail option to enjoy leading up to the fall holidays, expecially when you have been having flip-floppy weather, like we have in NYC.  It can be enjoyed in the cooler weather or the heat!


What is your favorite fall cocktail? Let me know and I will make it!

See ya next week :)
