Is it just me, or does everyone else start to immerse themselves in the culture of the chosen country they’ve decided to visit on vacation? Normally the big immersion starts after we get home and want to keep that vacation momentum going, but this time I’m starting early. Way, way early.

Think of it as a hint of what’s to come in the next few months because I’m off to London at the end of June, and right now I’m all about everything British. Of course I’ve always been a little bit of an Anglophile, but it’s amplified even more now that I’m in trip planning mode. While the sites and cities are an important part of the trip the food plays an even bigger role.

Tea is and always had been my go-to warm drink, and to go to a country where it is their drink is a big deal. Finally, I’ll be in a land where people don’t look at me weird for saying I don’t drink coffee!

In honor of my trip, I figured it’s the perfect excuse to make a tea cocktail. I know sangria isn’t exactly British, but tea is, and mostly definitely, so is the Pimm’s mixed in this Red Rooibos Tea Sangria. There really is nothing more refreshing that a glass of freshly brewed ice tea on a warm day or sangria or even a Pimm’s cup.

So it makes complete sense to just jumble everything together into one big cocktail, that’s ready to serve a crowd at spring and summer barbecues. I would even serve this right up with afternoon tea service!
