2. Once your green tea has completely cooled, fill a traditional copper Moscow Mule mug or a mocktail glass with ice.

3. Pour the bubbly ginger beer or ale into the glass.

4. Top with 3 oz of Ginger Peach Green Tea and fresh lime juice.

5. Gently stir your green tea mocktail to blend the flavors.

Magic Mojito Mocktail Featuring Butterfly Pea Flower

Impress your guests with a color changing mojito. This color changing effect occurs because of the special butterfly pea flowers in our Blueberry Lavender Daily Beauty Iced Tea. Butterfly pea tea will change from a blueish purple to a bright pink when an acidic ingredient is added. This butterfly pea tea mocktail is sure to have the whole party enthralled when it changes color at the last step of this recipe.


5 oz of Blueberry Lavender Daily Beauty Iced Tea prepared according to the directions below
5 mint leaves
1 teaspoon of granulated sugar
Sprig of mint for garnish
1 oz fresh lime juice


1. Steep a quart of Blueberry Lavender Daily Beauty Iced Tea according to the package instructions. Cool completely in the fridge.

2. When you are ready to serve your mocktail, add the mint leaves and granulated sugar to a highball glass. Muddle the mint leaves and sugar together in the bottom of the glass with a cocktail muddler or the handle of a wooden spoon until the sharp aroma of the mint leaves is released.

3. Fill the glass with ice.

4. Pour 5 oz of Blueberry Lavender Daily Beauty Iced Tea into the glass over the ice and muddled mint. Add a sprig of mint as a garnish.

5. If you are serving this drink to a guest, you may want to let them do this last step so that they can appreciate the color changing effect. Add 1 oz of fresh lime juice to the Magic Mojito Mocktail. Enjoy the sight of the lime juice merging with the iced tea and slowly turning it bright pink.

Sweet Dreams Mocktail

This is the iced tea mocktail to savor when you want to set yourself up for deep and restful sleep. The herbal allies of lemon balm, chamomile, lavender, passion flower and valerian root in this recipe work together to help you unwind and relax.* This chamomile tea mocktail is a perfect companion for watching the sunset or stargazing on a summer evening.

1 tablespoon of honey (optional)
4 oz tonic water
1 orange twist


1. Steep 4 Chamomile Lemon Herbal Tea Bags in 12 oz of just boiled water for 7 minutes.
Remove the tea bags and allow the tea to cool. If you prefer a sweeter cocktail, dissolve

your mocktail glass. This ensures a burst of orange scent and flavor with every sip.
