Festive Sparkling Cran-Pomegranate Tea Soda

Are sugar plums and pomegranates dancing in your head? They will be when you make up this festive herbal tea recipe. Flavors of cranberry, pomegranate and orange will be noticeable, but while this easy recipe makes 2 servings, it can easily be doubled or tripled, depending on the company you are entertaining. The resulting bubbly tea soda is sweet and fruity, but not overpowering in sweetness. Serve with a wide-mouth straw, so the jellied cranberry sauce make it an alternative boba tea recipe, just without the tapioca pearls. 


Servings: 2

Time: 15 minutes, plus time to chill

Ingredients: 

  • 4 Stash Cranberry Pomegranate herbal tea bags
  • 2 cups water
  • 1/4 cup cranberry juice cocktail
  • 1 12-oz can Italian orange soda
  • 1 14-ounce can jellied cranberry sauce, cut into small cubes
  • Orange rounds for garnish

Directions:

  1. Bring water to a boil, then remove from the heat and add the tea bags. Steep the tea for 5 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  2. Remove the tea bags and discard. Add the cranberry juice and stir. Refrigerate until chilled completely, about 1 hour.
  3. Fill two tall glasses with the tea mixture. Top with Italian orange soda.
  4. Drop a spoonful of the cranberry sauce cubes.
  5. Garnish with an orange round and serve.
