Celebrate Spring with Seasonal Tea-Based Cocktails

Posted by Avery Bressler on March 23, 2015 at 1:12pm 0 Comments

Friday marked the long-awaited first day of Spring, and what better way to celebrate than with a refreshing Spring cocktail! Owl’s Brew, the artisanal, fresh-brewed, and ready-to-pour tea crafted for cocktails, has three delicious Spring sipper recommendations (including one mocktail, for anyone not partaking in alcohol) for you!



Made with just tea, water and agave, Owl’s Brew is offered in three flavors (The Classic, Pink & Black, Coco-Lada). Each flavor can be mixed with a variety of spirits (vodka, gin, tequila, beer, champagne, etc.) and is simple to make—“2 parts brew, 1 part booze.” As a bonus, Owl’s Brew cocktails are 1/3 the calories (or less!) of comparable cocktails!
