For a refreshing and festive non-alcoholic St. Paddy’s day beverage, try this cooling mint green tea spritzer. Green tea is full of good-for-you antioxidants and the revitalizing fresh mint leaves provide drinkable stress relief. Plain seltzer water makes this drink super fun and bubbly. No table sugar here - honey acts as a natural sweetener. Serve these drinks spruced up with some fresh lemon wedges on the side of the glass.
