What Are Your Guests Sipping On, In and Out of the Spa?
Here are some favorite festive spaside beverages our Facebook followers suggested:
- Sparkling Water with a slice of lime
- Vodka on the rocks
- Wine, any kind
Holiday entertaining in your hot tub is one of the joys of the season. No get together would be complete without beverages for your guests to sip on both in and out of the hot tub. Provide a variety of drinks to appeal to all your guests as they soak, socialize and relax.
There are plenty of festive hot beverages to choose from including the hot toddy, seasonal teas, egg nog and mulled cider. These are all great drinks to enjoy after a soak, when your body temperature has cooled down. But when soaking in warm water, there’s nothing like a cool beverage to whet your whistle and keep you feeling comfortable while providing hydration.
For your upcoming holiday gathering that involves having guests soak in your spa, we recommend this chilled spiced toddy recipe. This is a twist from the traditional “toddy”, as it is non-alcoholic and served chilled, not hot.
Spiced Apple Hot Tub Toddy
To get the full flavor, it’s best to prepare this mulled cider recipe on the stove, and serve it slightly chilled.
