peppermint is the pumpkin spice

Peppermint Is the New Pumpkin Spice

‘Tis the season to be merry and bright. ‘Tis the season to also drink more than you usually would. Think wine, egg nog, hot buttered rum, champagne, gingerbread martinis … you get the idea.

What does all of this mean? Difficulty getting up some mornings and obviously, more calories and extra sugar than your body is used to.

But, it doesn’t have to be this way. In fact (if you ask us), it shouldn’t be this way. Which is why come the holidays we’re obsessed with our peppermint hint water. 0 calories. 0 sugar. 0 diet sweeteners. 100% good.

Here are 5 fun ways to serve peppermint hint water during the holidays.

:: As tea

Heat it up and enjoy! Yep – it’s that simple. If you want more minty goodness, add a peppermint tea bag to your hot peppermint hint water for maximum mint flavor. Want to mix it up? Add a fruit-based tea, like cranberry or raspberry to your heated peppermint hint.

 

:: As a tasty, low-cal, 0 sugar cocktail

Fill a cool tall glass with ice. Add 1.5 ounces of premium vodka. Mix in 3 ounces of chilled peppermint hint water, stir well, and top off with sparkling water. Garnish with mint leaves. Serve your peppermint cocktail! Only 95 calories.

 

:: As giant ice cubes

Giant ice cubes are all the rage right now. Simply add one to your cocktail and it’ll instantly get a trendy upgrade. Plus, the ice slowly melts, allowing your drink to remain tasteful and not watered down. Yes please! Use peppermint hint to make a giant ice cube and add the cube to any hard liquor or cocktail for a taste of peppermint that isn’t overwhelming. Sphere ice molds here.

 

:: To make holiday oatmeal

Take your oatmeal to the next level by making it with peppermint hint water instead of water. Then, mix in cinnamon or pumpkin pie spice to taste, a tablespoon of nut butter, and cooked chopped apples (recipe here) and enjoy!

 

:: To make a vanilla peppermint cappuccino

Use peppermint hint water to make a shot of espresso and steam unsweetened vanilla almond milk. Top off your espresso with the steamed almond milk and foam and enjoy! For a chocolate touch, sprinkle cocoa powder on top of the foam. And for a holiday pick me up, sprinkle on cinnamon.
