'Tis the season to enjoy a refreshingly festive mocktail!

Time to make
- 2 Red Seal Lemon & Ginger Hot or Cold Brew teabags
- 1 ½ cups hot water
- 3 sprigs fresh rosemary
- 1 lemon
- 2 handfuls of ice
- Sparkling water
- Fresh pomegranate seeds, to garnish
Step 1 Pop the teabags and one sprig of rosemary into a small jug or bowl, pour over the hot water and leave for 10-15 minutes to infuse and cool. Remove the teabags and sprig of rosemary.
Step 2 Cut two slices off the lemon to use for garnish and squeeze the juice from the remaining piece into the tea and stir to combine.
Step 3 Mix together the sugar and cinnamon on a small plate or bowl that will fit the rim of your glasses. Take a slice of lemon and gently run it around the rim of each glass. Dip the rim of each glass into the sugar and cinnamon mixture to coat.
Step 4 Fill the glasses with a handful of ice and pour over the tea.
Step 5 Top up the glasses with sparkling water and garnish each with a sprig of rosemary, slice of lemon and a generous sprinkle of pomegranate seeds.
This festive fizz mocktail goes well with a nip of gin if you like something a bit stronger.
