December – The Drink A Day Month

December is easily the only month where it is acceptable to have a drink roughly everyday for the entire month (Not saying this is what I did, but for any of you that did do this – it’s perfectly ok!)

This post will share a few of the my favourite drinks (both alcoholic and non-alcoholic) that I’ve made/tried over the December period and my interpretation of the ingredients used.

Iced Tea (because you can never go wrong with it)

Pot of freshly brewed Black Tea
