THE TEA HOUND: TEA-INFUSED COCKTAIL RECIPE

The beginning of spring has us all... thirsty 

Introducing our new blog series, STEEPED, which will feature all of the creative and unique ways you can use our 100% organic teas, from cocktails to foods, and just about everything in between.

To kickoff our new tea recipe series, we are sharing one of our all-time favorite tea-infused cocktail recipes: the Tea Hound. A refreshing drink featuring our Unexpected Fling Organic Green Tea!

(PS: Check out our St. Pat-tea’s Day Drink to find another way you can use this tea.)    

Let’s get started!   

THE TEA HOUND

What’s In It For You?

In this recipe, we use our Unexpected Fling Organic Green Tea, which is antioxidant-rich, helps boosts metabolism, burn fat, and increase hydration plus has zero calories! We also use pink grapefruit juice, which is high in potassium and in vitamins A and C. Pink grapefruit juice also helps strengthen your immune system. Who knew an alcoholic beverage could be so healthy? 

What You Will Need: 

3 Shots of our Unexpected Fling Organic Green Tea 

1 Shots of Vodka (we recommend Belvedere) 

1 Shot of Pink Grapefruit Juice 

Splash of Lillet Rose 

Splash of Tea-Infused Simple Syrup 

Steps:

1. Make iced or cold brew Unexpected Fling Organic Green Tea (instructions on the back of package)

2. Make Tea-Infused Simple Syrup:

  • In a small saucepan, combine 1 cup Unexpected Fling green tea + 1 cup raw cane sugar 
  • Bring to a boil
  • Reduce heat and stir over low heat until it becomes a syrup

3. Mix the Unexpected Fling tea with the vodka, the Pink Grapefruit Juice, the splash of Lillet Rose and the simple syrup in a shaker filled with ice.

4. Shake and pour over ice.

5. Garnish with slice of grapefruit and enjoy with friends!
