Pumpkin Tea Refresher

by James Stevenson

I love tea infused cocktails especially when the fall seasonal flavors are involved. The recipe today highlights pumpkin tea which mixes so well with lemon and vodka. The pumpkin tea was a good pick because the mild pumpkin flavor adds fall spiciness to the cocktail without having to add any additional spices.

This is a great recipe to turn into a Halloween pumpkin punch when the time comes, especially if you are looking for something that does not have any carbonation. The tea can be brewed ahead of time and boom just like that you have a tea cocktail punch! If you are looking for a hassle free craft cocktail try this tea infused pumpkin refresher.
