Mellow in the winter, drink recipes...Mmmmmmm

Find a warm spot with friends and serve up a few of these, make any of these drink selections "Mocktails", just omit the alcohol!

Peace Tea

2 oz. Mellow all natural relaxation beverage
4 oz. Passion fruit green tea
1.5 oz. Sake
1 oz. Lychee liqueur

Warm the Mellow and tea over low heat until desired temp. Assemble the ingredients in a mug and drop in a cinnamon stick.

Mellow Mimosa

4 oz. Mellow all natural relaxation beverage
3 oz. Champagne or Sparkling cider

Pour half of Mellow in a fluted glass, then all the champagne, finish by slowly pouring the remainder of Mellow.

After "Yoga" Glow

4 oz. Mellow all natural relaxation drink
1.5 oz. fresh squeezed orange juice
1/8 cup frozen strawberries
2 oz. half & half (fat free works too!)
1 oz. Pomegranate liqueur
Ice cubes

Combine all ingredients in cocktail shaker over ice, or blend. Serve in a stemmed glass, tastes better somehow!. Omit the liquor for a refreshing drink with just a little guilt...for the days we may not have really gone to yoga!


2 oz. Mellow all natural relaxation beverage
1 oz. tequila
1 oz. Cointreau
3/4 oz. fresh lime juice
1 1/2 oz. organic agave nectar
Salt and lime for garnish (optional)
Ice Cubes

Shake with ice or blend, salt or sugar rim by wiping the rim with an orange or lime slice then dipping glass onto a small plate to garnish.

*Food Network will be stealing this frosting recipe from me soon, hope you do too!

Mellow Cupcakes
...sometimes we need a little treat with a cocktail...

1-1/2 cups Mellow all natural relaxation beverage
4 oz. soft unsalted butter
8 oz. cream cheese, at room temperature
14 oz. powdered sugar
*1.5 oz. Champagne (optional)

Don't waste precious cocktail hour time, manage it by utilizing store bought batter, my favorite mix is red velvet substituting Mellow for the water, its so pretty with the Mellow frosting. But chocolate works really great too! Invest in a mini muffin pan, a fun trick...bake your cupcakes in this and now your treats are smaller with a little less guilt without sacrificing decadence.

Bake and cool the cupcakes.

Mellow Cream Cheese Frosting:

*Reduce the Mellow over low heat (patience is necessary here, but at least there is more time for another cocktail) down to 3 fl. oz. (*add champagne at this time), allow to cool.
*Place butter into electric mixer bowl with paddle attachment and cream on medium-high speed for 1 minute, add the cream cheese and continue to mix for 2 more minutes, turn the speed down to low and slowly add in the powdered sugar and the Mellow reduction, mix until the sugar is fully combined.
*Remove icing from the mixer and place into a plastic gallon size bag, make a small cut at the end and pipe onto cupcakes! Or place a tip into the cut corner of the bag before piping if a fancier look is wanted!
*Garnish with shaved white chocolate if they last long enough...enjoy! A side note: edible silver glitter is my personal favorite, just in case your feeling like elevating your enjoyment levels!

Speaking of domestic goddesses, make this recipe once and I promise you will find that its actually quite easy, a true no fuss keeper.

I hope to have brought you Peace Love & Mellow...have a safe and fun holiday season!
