Colourful Iced Teas

 

Classic cocktail


Classic cocktail with a twist Try this Boston Tea Party Cocktail, a classic bourbon and honey cocktail with homemade tea syrup. Mix 1 cup lightly packed tea leaves, 1 cup sugar, and 1 cup water in a saucepan. Simmer for 10 minutes and strain. Then mix 2 oz bourbon, 1 oz lemon juice, 1 oz tea syrup, and ice in a cocktail shaker. Strain and serve in a rocks glass. This cocktail is sweet, smoky, and perfect for a relaxed night.

Herbal infusion


Herbal infusion with gin For a refreshing and herbaceous cocktail, infuse gin with Organic Chamomile Lemongrass tea. In a mason jar, add 2 oz gin, 1 tbsp honey, and 1 chamomile tea bag. Seal, shake, and let it sit for 30 minutes. Then pour the mixture into a shaker over ice with 1 oz lemon juice. Strain and garnish with a lemon twist. This cocktail has a subtle floral flavour and a lemony finish, perfect for a summer evening.


Fruity and herbal


For a fruity and herbal cocktail, mix Organic Elderberry Hibiscus Tea with rum and berries. Brew 1 cup of hibiscus tea and let it cool. In a shaker over ice, mix 2 oz white rum, 1 oz hibiscus tea, 1 oz lemon juice, 1 oz maple syrup, and 2-3 fresh raspberries. Shake and strain into a glass with ice. Garnish with raspberries and a mint sprig. This cocktail has a sweet but tangy flavour with a hint of floral and berries.


Non-alcoholic tea mocktail


For a non-alcoholic tea mocktail, mix green tea with fresh herbs and fruits. Brew 1 cup of green tea and let it cool. In a glass with ice, mix 1 oz honey syrup (mix 1 cup honey with 1 cup water), 1 oz green tea, a few sliced lemons, and a few fresh mint leaves. Stir and garnish with lemon wedges and mint sprigs. This mocktail is a refreshing, healthy, and flavourful drink.
