"From Southern Living. Good hot or iced, this tea has a shocking "orange pop" color and a nice relaxing flavor with a hint of booze. I think it makes a great after dinner drink or alternative type of warm cocktail, as you would with boozy coffee or spiked hot chocolate. I like it. Keep any extra in the refrigerator to warm up later or serve on ice."
