Mulled french vanilla apple cider tea is a great way to start Dry January.
Dry January is a great way to experiment with different mocktails you’ve never had. One of my favorites is apple cider. That’s why I tried out mulled french vanilla apple cider tea and everyone loved it.
It’s already mid-January and the year just started. Normally I don’t curate New Year’s goals. Let’s face it I always stop early on. I try and start the year with a positive mindset. Things were a bit different when it came to the holidays this past year. Less hosting made me think of how I could start the new year off fresh. Dry January is such an awesome start. You can spend it sipping on this mulled french vanilla apple cider tea.
Via Wikipedia: Dry January as a month in which one refrains from drinking any alcohol as a personal challenge.
Why participate in dry January
I never thought of the word dry January until recently. If you’ve been following along with me you know that I just started a new postpartum wellness journey. This is such a perfect time to instill Dry January; from a wellness perspective. Time to get into a wellness routine that will work. If you’re one to love a good drink then this mulled apple cider tea is perfect. It keeps you warm and cozy throughout the Wintertime.
Mulled French Vanilla Apple Cider Recipe
To get the vanilla flavor I love using Torani Sugar Free French Vanilla. We all know I love Torani. If you follow me on my Instagram page I’m always sharing the recipes that I use Torani in my stories. You can click HERE to find your nearest retailer or even grab from your local Walmart.
It’s a super yummy recipe. Aside from the french vanilla, all you need is apple cider ( unless you want to make it from scratch) 12 oz of unsweetened black tea, brown sugar, cinnamon sticks, nutmeg, star anise, and allspice.
