Santa’s Sweet Tea Station

The moment that the last trick or treater leaves my doorstep, I am in full Christmas mode. Yes, I am one of those people. Sure, I love Thanksgiving just as much as the next red blooded American, but I live for yuletide cheer. On November 1st, I have my ugly holiday sweater on and I am in full decorating mode. If it were up to me, it would be Christmas year-round in my household. So when I had the opportunity to team up with Milo’s Tea to create a holiday-themed drink, I couldn’t have said ‘yes!’ faster. Who’s up for some of Santa’s Sweet Tea?

As you know, I usually stick to cocktails and spiked drinks, but today’s recipe is all about family. Now that I have a daughter, I am determined to make the holiday season as magical as possible. It’s the only time in her life where the whimsy can truly take flight and I am going all in, my friends. The idea for today’s post came from the adult-oriented mulled wine station. But this time, it’s all about including the kiddies and incorporating a bit of the South with it. I am a Texan now, after all. Plus, a tea station is one of the most festive (and easiest) things you can put together for a holiday party. All you need is a bit of Milo’s Tea, spices, and imagination…

Santa’s Sweet Tea Station


  • 1 gallon of Milo’s Famous Sweet Tea
  • 3 whole nutmeg
  • 2 tablespoons of cinnamon bark
  • 1 tablespoon of whole cloves
  • 1 tablespoon of ground ginger
  • 1 tablespoon of allspice
  • 4-6 cinnamon sticks
  • Garnish: Christmas cookies and/or holiday marshmallows.


  1. Set up a station in your kitchen with a large crockpot, Christmas decorations, and any condiments or cookies you want to offer with the tea.
  2. Pour the whole gallon of Milo’s Famous Sweet Tea into the crockpot and turn on to medium heat.
  3. Add all of the spices to the brew and mix thoroughly. Allow to heat up for approximately 45 minutes, until warm and ready to serve.
  4. Laddle the tea into mugs for guests and serve with cream. Sip and enjoy!


  • For an extra special touch, cut 1/2 inch slits into marshmallow ginger bread men and stick them onto the mugs as garnish. Enjoy!

I am personally recommending Milo’s Tea for this recipe and station. It is fresh brewed, has no preservatives or added acids, and features natural ingredients. It’s delicious taste and gallon sized options also make it ideal for holiday parties. For the Santa’s Sweet Tea, I used the Milo’s Tea sweetened with pure cane sugar, but there are also other options available if you want to change it up a bit: no calorie, unsweetened, lemonade, and a tea and lemonade mix. Lastly, like many of the brands I like to recommend to my lovely readers, Milo’s Tea Company has a great history. It is a family owned, certified woman-owned business operating out of the USA in Bessemer, Alabama. Girl power! The family started off selling their fresh brewed Famous Sweet Tea to local Birmingham grocery stores in 1989 and have worked hard to grow the company to what it is today. Personally, I love a good family run-business success story and try to support those living the dream as best I can.

There you have it! All the sweetness of the South’s famous drink mixed with all the warm spices of the Christmas season. A perfect way to ring in the holiday festivities. I found Milo’s at my local Kroger in the refrigerated juice and dairy section, but they are available at lots of retailers. Find a store near you by using the store locator… you wouldn’t want to disapoint Santa now, would you?!
