And I made it with Milo's Sweet Tea! I love the back story of this company. Did you know that Milo's was founded as a restaurant in 1946 by Milo and Bea Carlton, after Milo returned from World War II? Milo's is an award-winning tea and I love that there are no preservatives in it! It also has a clean ingredient list and is available sweetened with cane sugar, no calorie sweetened with sucrose and also available unsweet.

It's the perfect drink for the holidays and I know you're going to love it even more in this cranberry sauce recipe!
