Tea-based Cocktail? Go for it!
Calling all tea lovers! Here’s an original recipe created just for you by mixologist Rose Simard: a tea-based cocktail made with black tea and ginger beer, for a unique Japanese twist. Kampai!
So with inspiration through the roof, I created this tea-based cocktail recipe featuring, among others, jasmine black tea and ginger beer. The result? A chic, refreshing cocktail that's ready to serve in seconds with Structube's new tea sets.
Having several guests over? Why not transform this charming teapot into a pitcher! Transfer the cooled tea into a temporary container, then prepare the number of cocktails needed in a shaker, pouring them into the teapot as you go. Just chill the full teapot until your guests arrive.
When you're ready to serve the aperitifs, simply pour your tea-based cocktail into highball glasses filled with ice, and top off with ginger beer.
