You sure don’t have to have the flu, a cold or just be ill to make this pineapple mint spiked green tea! It’s good anytime! UNspike it and have in the afternoon. Or, hey, if it’s getting near cocktail time, keep that ‘spike’ in it!

Now this ‘drink’ can be considered a cocktail or not. It’s your choice! I love anything with pineapple juice, so when you add that to the green tea, you have more bountiful flavor, I think. And, you sure do know the benefits of drinking green tea. Surely you’ve read about them, but, if for some reason, you haven’t, then here you go. Check it out! xox ~ally

I have so many recipes with pineapple juice. How about in coleslaw! I’m telling you, crazy good!

  1. Are you back in the States yet? Bet you’re sipping on this to re-hydrate after the long flight, with or without the spike! Was also thinking this would taste wonderful chilled (maybe served in a big pitcher with mint leaf ice cubes?) So many options. 🙂 Hope you made it back safely, xo!

    • Miss Kimmmeee! I am back and my body is recalibrating! Twenty-three days and 18 flights halfway around the world has a way of throwing your body’s time zone outta whack! YES! Chilled would be awesome! Wanna catch up and talk soon, luv! xox
