Savor the best of both worlds with fruit-infused tea cocktails

As the summer heat begins to diminish and the leaves start to fall, we all tend to settle down, and get back into the swing of things. We unpack our suitcases, put away the flip flops and stop ordering the icy margarita every happy hour in exchange for something more suitable of the brisk, fall months. To help make the transition from summer to fall, try integrating a winter classic like tea into your fruitful summer cocktail choices.

Mighty Leaf Tea’s AperiTea combines Mighty Leaf Tea’s robust whole leaf tea blends with fruit juice and other natural botanicals, culminating into three exotic varieties: Chamomile Citrus Berry, Green Tea Tropical and Orange Jasmine Mango. While AperiTea can make a great mocktail using lemon lime or club soda, the fruit juices in the tea mixer are further enhanced when blended with Skyy Spirits’ own SKYY Infusions, an all-natural infused experience made with premium SKYY Vodka and real, succulent fruit. Delicious SKYY Infusions deliver the “true-to-fruit” taste of succulent, sun-ripened Citrus, Pineapple, Cherry, Passion Fruit, Raspberry and Grape that highlight the popular flavors of summer.
