Tea, a resourceful ingredient
On the creative side, tea offers limitless possibilities for experimentation; a real treat for cocktail experts. It is very often combined with a dash of tonic, sparkling water or ginger ale. And to top it off, the secret lies in adding a syrupy note. The combination of these three ingredients results in tasty, gourmet and sometimes even surprising mixtures.
Here are a few combination ideas:
• Green or white tea + a syrup of your choice: bergamot, jasmine, white peach, hibiscus, passion fruit, lychee or pineapple.
• Red tea + a syrup of your choice: cherry, pink grapefruit, cranberry, lychee, mango and spices, or ginger.
• Black tea + a syrup of your choice: blueberry, passion fruit, lemongrass or vanilla. Each with a touch of sparkling water (tonic, sparkling water, ginger ale…).
In summer, the recipes are fresh and thirst-quenching with floral or fruity notes. During the day, it is served without alcohol and chilled with plenty of ice cubes, for a very
refreshing taste. As temperatures drop, there’s nothing like a spicy blend, with perhaps a bit of cinnamon for delightfully cosy winter flavours.
You can even serve tea cocktails hot! Here’s just a few recipe ideas:
