Everyone needs a little sympathy from time to time. Tea “with sympathy” is a spiked cup of tea, perfect for when you’re not feeling well or after a long day.
While you can use any tea you’d like, I made a pineapple ginger blend with tons of honey — a blend to target all the colds and allergies flaring up, because it is that time of year!
Pineapple is good for coughs, honey is good for sore throats, and ginger is great for digestion. Add a splash of bourbon and you are good to go!
You can enjoy this beverage hot or cold. To serve cold, allow the tea to cool to room temperature then chill in the fridge for a few hours and serve over ice.
