On the night of the first snowstorm of the year I found myself wanting a hot drink other than my usual cup of nightly tea, so I started pouring juices in the tea kettle and after playing a bit with modifiers, the Sweet Adeline was born. Though I'd made similar drinks in the past - many while playing with a variety of Hot Toddies - this one was something special and really caught me by surprise. I think it was because of the warm fruit combination accented by the sweet floral note. It is truly a comfort drink, like a warm tea punch, and it is one that begs to be poured before curling up on the couch with a good book and your favorite afghan on a cold night.

A couple of notes... I have also used one of the bottled juices that combines the three fruits in one pretty package and it is okay, but if you can, I recommend using separate juices for more control over the flavor. I like to stir together the nectar and lemon juice prior to adding the warm juice because it infuses the sweet with the sour, giving each more punch under the heat. Also, I chose to add water because the juices alone can be too sweet.

Prep Time: 10 minutes

Total Time: 10 minutes

Yield: 1 Drink

Ingredients:

Preparation:

  1. Pour the juices into a tea kettle and warm slowly - the normal time it takes for your water to heat for tea or until the whistle blows (see tips).
  2. In the meantime, stir together the agave nectar and lemon juice in the bottom of a coffee mug.
  3. When the juice is nice and warm, pour it into the mug and add a bag of chamomile tea.
  4. Allow to steep for 3-5 minutes, then remove the teabag.
