Sparkling Ginger Cranberry Punch
This Sparkling Ginger Cranberry Punch was developed to satisfy our desire for a good non-alcoholic option. Tea adds depth and an intriguing tannic flavor. It will also add caffeine, which is why we use a decaffeinated black tea. Cranberry juice provides a light refreshing flavor, and a clear gorgeous color. The Gus Ginger Ale contains purified sparkling water, cane sugar, natural ginger root extract and other natural flavors, citric acid, and caramelized sugar for color.

Peach Iced Tea
This Low FODMAP Peach Iced Tea is as refreshing as it is pretty, and easy to make. It begins with a sugar sweetened peach purée featuring a low FODMAP amount of yellow peaches.

Strawberry Arnold Palmer
The Arnold Palmer is a combo of lemonade and iced black tea and it is incredibly refreshing. The drink is also sometimes called a Half & Half, as the ratio is half of each beverage, but whatever you call it, the sweet and tangy flavors are incredibly thirst quenching. We added strawberry purée; we think it makes it even better! Get the recipe for Strawberry Arnold Palmer.
Arnold Palmer Popsicles
If you have never had that combo of half strong black iced tea and half lemonade, you are missing out – and in frozen form, such as these Arnold Palmer Ice Pops, it is refreshing to the nth degree! Get the recipe for Arnold Palmer Popsicles.
No need to go to the local coffee or tea shop for a cup of masala chai! Our Masala Chai is easy to make and by creating it ourselves, we can control ingredients and make one that is gut friendly and to our personal taste. Chai is simply the word for tea in India but many of us will think of the milky, sweet, spiced black tea more properly called Masala Chai when we hear the word. We chatted with a few friends, born in India or first-generation Americans – self-proclaimed chai fanatics and one tea sommelier from New Delhi – to gather information that would help us make classic masala chai. Get the recipe for Masala Chai – and ice it down for a refreshing take.
