Happy St. Patrick's Day, everyone!  Little Miss H. {who's in kindergarten} is soooo excited about going to school today.  I mean, she's excited everyday ... but she's especially excited today.  Because she's heard stories.  Stories about little green leprechauns showing up in classrooms and creating mischief and messes.

And she soooo wants a little leprechaun to visit her classroom and make a mess!  She's seriously talked about it for days.  I wonder what stories I'll be in store for when I pick her up this afternoon!  And if a little leprechaun does visit her classroom and make a mess? ... I certainly hope she'll be a sweetie and help clean it up.

So while I don't have a special little leprechaun treat, or rockin' shamrock-shaped cookies, or even a gorgeous green dessert to share with you today in honor of St. Patrick's Day ... I do  have this Orange-Green Tea Punch recipe to share.  Is that close enough to being appropriate for the day??

I mean ... it does have green in  it ... and then orange like a leprechaun's beard, right?

I know, it's a stretch.  A huge stretch.  But let's go with it, okay?

Little Miss H. and I created this Orange-Green Tea Punch recipe a few weeks back when we were hosting a fun little tea party.  We enjoyed sipping on it and the Strawberry Tea Punch I shared right after the party.  And enjoyed nibbling on Pound Cake Cookies, Strawberry Cheesecake Strawberry Bites, Spinach Balls ... and other little bites.

But we had even more fun creating the punch recipes together.  Little Miss is a recipe developer & taste-testing natural.  The Saturday afternoon before our tea party, Little Miss and I spent some time together testing out my tea punch ideas, creating small batches of four different punches.  She pulled her stepping stool right up to our kitchen island, asked to taste each ingredient on it's own before it was added to the punch, and tasted each punch every step of the way as we were creating it.  It was so sweet.

We decided this Orange-Green Tea Punch recipe was definitely a keeper.  We loved it made with Lipton's Orange Passionfruit Jasmine Green Tea, but you could make it with strong-brewed regular green tea, too.

Now, my only question about this punch that remains ... Do you think the leprechauns would like it?  {Hmmm, I'm thinking they would!}
