Iced tea mocktails - giveaway

GIVEAWAY NOW CLOSED. Congrats Madeline!

As a blogger sometimes I get things in the mail from companies to try out. Most of the time John brings in the package and leaves it by my seat in the kitchen. However when boxes from Lipton come he feels the need to drink up some of the products before I can even take photos of them.

Notice the diet citrus green tea in the back row on the left, notice that it's empty. YUP. Blame that one on the husband. I guess it's good marketing material though, "It's so good your husband will drink it before you even get to see it"

Sounds good to me, right?

Lipton has been busy coming up with tasty new flavors like coconut passionfruit. WHAT coconut?? Bring it ONNNN! And they have also been busy making up cool refreshing mocktail and cocktail recipes. Like the tea-drenched ginger refresher... with or without rum... who's going to say no to a splash of rum???  (recipe at end of post)

Giveaway time. Want to win the care packaged pictured at the top of the page? Yup the one with lots of tasty drinks and drink mixes? Head over to Lipton and check out all of their tea related recipes. Then come back here and tell me which one you'd love to try! (one entry per person, US only- sorry international peeps!) Winner will be selected by and emailed (so please use a real email so I can contact you)

To keep up with all things Lipton you can find them on Facebook and Twitter.

Tea-Drenched Ginger Refresher
recipe by Lipton Mixologist Scott Fitzgerald

1 to go stick of lipton tea and honey half and half berry lemonade decaf
2oz fresh lime juice
1 oz agave syrup
1 dash bitters (I left out since I didn't have any)
2 Tbs ginger puree**
(I added in some fresh raspberries too!)

Combined mix with 8oz chilled water, gently stir. In a shaker add ice tea and remaining ingredients, shake and pour into a tall glass. Stir in a little dark rum if you want to add some flare!

**Ginger puree: 6 pieces of peeled ginger + 1 tsp of cane sugar, blend until even consistency.

Oh, husband! Don't you know you're not supposed to eat, drink, or touch the edibles in any way before your wife can photograph them? Dan knows that rule all too well. :)

Mmm tea. My boyfriend probably wouldn't touch it, but if I happened to receive it at my parents' house, it'd be all gone before I even heard of it. That ginger refresher sounds.. refreshing! Haha delicious. The sangria tea sounds especially interesting...

I won this giveaway on another blog :) I pretty much dislike tea, so I gifted my boyfriend with the bottles. However, I dislike plain water even more, so I grabbed the Half and Half packets and flavored my water. It was really good! I've now taken over the fruity ones, and I gave boyfriend the rest.
