Better with BRITA - Hot Mocktail Recipe

I've teamed up once again with BRITA on their 'Better with BRITA' campaign, to help inspire my readers to incorporate filtered water into their everyday lives, as part of a healthy lifestyle.

We drink a lot of water in our house, and the fridge is always full of refilled bottles, which does get a bit much when I can no longer fit the weekly shop in as the boys keep loading it up with bottles filled from our BRITA water tap. I could do with drinking a bit more myself, but I'll come to that in a future post when I take on a hydration challenge.

I do manage to keep myself hydrated throughout the day mostly through hot drinks such as coffee and tea (both regular and herbal). I also love a cocktail from time to time so I've combined the two in a hot mocktail, which will warm you from the inside in this cold weather, as well as keeping you hydrated.
