The holidays are upon us. A time that friends and families gather together.

We’ve recently moved to a new house and a new town. It’s time to meet new friends and chat with a glass of iced tea. I decided to host a very small “meet the neighbors” get together. I served a few appetizers, Including Peach Turkey Meatballs, along with 4 delicious flavor options of Southern Breeze Cold Brew Sweet Tea. A sweet tea bar if you will.

“Share the Sweetness” with new friends. I’ve long been a fan of cold brew teas. I was so excited when Southern Breeze announced they were now offering cold brew options for their zero calorie, no guilt sweet teas. The sweetener is already in the bag. There is no need to add sugar. Now I don’t know about you but I don’t think that Southern Breeze could make it any easier to enjoy a glass of tea. There’s no water to boil, no calories and best of all….the cold brew bags come in single serving size! Just grab a glass and add 8 ounces of cold water. Choose your flavor from Original, Half & Half (that’s half tea, half lemonade), Raspberry or Peach.  Add the tea bag to your glass of cold water and steep for 5 minutes. Discard the tea bag and add ice to enjoy. Super easy, right?!?

While you could offer a pitcher of iced cold water on a tea bar for self serve, I decided to make up small pitchers of each flavor. I left the tea bags in the pitcher so that the tags easily identified each flavor in each pitcher. Everyone loved it!

We have the beverages covered. Now let’s pair it with some delicious appetizers. Peach Turkey Meatballs are a delicious appetizer option that are easy to make and guests love them. You’ll find a printable recipe card at the end of the post.

    Your Peach Turkey Appetizers sound delicious; however, I don’t understand in the recipe you wrote “1 tsp. onion powder” and next ingredient is 1/2 tbsp. onion powder. Why not just put down the total of onion powder which iI believe would total 2 1/2 tsp. of onion powder.

      Carol,
      Thank you and I appreciate your letting me know that I added the Onion Powder twice. I’ve corrected the post (the first one should have read garlic powder).
