Everyone knows I am part time Fit Girl part time Party Girl! I’m always looking for light ways to sip after I tricep dip, so when I came across Owl’s Brew, fresh-brewed and ready-to-pour tea crafted for cocktails, I had to share. So get ready to turn those winter tea time dates to bonafide springtime happy hours!

MUST READ: CHIC DRINKS: Strawberry Basil Iced Tea

Made with just tea, water and agave, Owl’s Brew comes in three flavors (The Classic, Pink & Black, Coco-Lada) and guess what? I made a RAD cocktail with each of them. At only 1/3 the calories of comparable cocktails I didn’t feel one bit guilty come last call, so how about you call your girls, grab a shaker and let’s get happy. It’s 5 o’clock somewhere.

#1 The Classic Berry Mint-rita

This spin on a margarita is so refreshing and light, so it’s totally perfect for that Cinco de Mayo girl’s night.

2 Parts The Classic Owl’s Brew (English Breakfast with a tart twist…yum)

1 Part Tequila

Muddled strawberries and raspberries

1/2 teaspoon fresh mint

Shake or stir this baby up and serve it up. Cheers.

#2 The Double Brew

Beer and tea should hang out way more often. Holy cow!

2 Parts Coco-Lada Owl’s Brew (Black Tea, chai spices, pineapple, coconut – oh my)

1 Part Stout Beer (like a Guinness)

Orange slices

I smash a few thin orange slices (sans the peel) in the bottom, add the beer and Owl’s Brew and then garnish this delicious drink with an additional orange slice.

#3 Just Peachy White Wine

Spritzers move over! White wine, peaches and a hint of hibiscus is where it’s at.

2 Parts Pink & Black Owl’s Brew (Black tea with a strawberry lemon flavor and a hint of hibiscus)

1 Part White Wine

Frozen peaches

Until peaches are back in season these frozen ones are perfectly fresh and since they are frozen, they can also double as ice cubes. Win!

Aren’t these fabulous?! Drink wise girls and head over to Owl’s Brew to create your own healthy cocktails.

Extra Tea Tricks

Have some loose or bag teas hanging around that you want to try cocktails with? Me too! I love a green tea cocktail (either using tequila or vodka) and my KRUPS BW720 Performa Stainless Steel Kettle always saves the day. This RAD kitchen gadget is great for heating things up before you cool things down, so check it out and be sure to invite me to your next tea time happy hour.
