By now, there’s no denying that it’s crunch time when it comes to preparing for your seasonal holiday party. We’re always willing (and attempting) to stand out from the crowd, and while we’re the first ones to volunteer to host, we sometimes run out of ideas on what’ll make the night one remember. With this occasion being our moment to relax and wind down from the busy, busy year we’ve had, we’re settling on our addition to the table being tea-infused cocktails. While we love hibiscus, chamomile, or every popular green tea, wowing a crowd requires more.
That’s why we’re sticking with Good Day Herbal Tea to add to our menu this year. We know we’ll be drinking, so trying to combat some of the issues we’ll experience the day after (hello, hangover) is definitely our goal this year. Plus, CBD is said to do wonders for the day after nausea.

1½ ounce brown liquor such as brandy, whiskey or rum
1 tablespoon honey
½ ounce lemon juice
1 cup hot water
1/2 cup of Good Day Herbal Tea
Lemon wedge, cinnamon stick and star anise, for garnish (optional)

Good Day CBD-Infused Gin Sour
2 oz Good Day CBD-Infused Gin
1 oz Lemon
1 oz Honey Syrup
To infuse the gin: combine half a bottle of gin (375 ml) with Good Day Herbal Tea in a container, giving it a shake periodically. Give it a few hours to infuse. The tea always infuses very quickly, so you may need only a couple of hours, but no more than a day.
To make the drink: combine the gin, lemon, and honey syrup in a shaker filled two-thirds with ice. Shake well and strain into a chilled cocktail glass. Garnish with a star anise pod floated on top and enjoy.
