Bookish Beverage – Biannual Bibliothon Day 2 – Winter 2018

Hello readers! Today’s Biannual Bibliothon blogging challenge comes from Will Read for Booze and it is to create a beverage based on a book or character. So today, I am going to share with you one of my favorite drinks inspired by one of my favorite characters: Winnie the Pooh.

My body is pretty much incapable of processing either alcohol or caffeine (or dairy, come to think of it), so my drink of choice is usually water or herbal tea. Most mornings, I make myself a cup of tea in the way I am about to share and the first sip feels like hugging your favorite teddybear.

It’s also perfect for Pooh because of the honey (or should I say hunny?), just make sure you have enough before you get started, because you never can tell with bees.

Here is how to make it:

Boil water and pour over a bag of rooibos or rooibos chai. Let steep for 4-6 minutes. Stir in about a teaspoon of honey – or more, if you like. Add a splash of your favorite dairy or non-dairy milk or creamer – I usually use almond milk.

For an extra touch you can add a cinnamon stick to your mug (Pooh sticks anyone?).

I hope you enjoy your drinks and shout out to anyone who got all of my Pooh references!
