I’ve been bored with cocktails lately — old Fashion this, Moscow Mule that – snooze. But I did have interesting one at a spot called Wilson & Wilson. It was different, had a nice zing to it. When I ask the waitress what was in it, she said they infused their alcohol with tea. Amazing idea. A few Google searches later, I saw this really great recipe on Theframedtable.com and knew I just had to try it. I switched it up, to make it more personal so feel free to check out the original recipe, mine and make it your own too.
- 1 oz simple syrup (I used Nadia G’s recipe)
- 2 oz lemon juice
- 3 oz Chai tea infused vodka (Let the tea sit un the vodka for a 2-3 hours)
- some ice
- Dash of sparkling water
- dried hibiscus flowers for flavor and beauty.
In a glass add ice, pour the simple syrup, lemon juice, and infused vodka. Lightly stir. Add a dried hibiscus flower, top with sparking water and gently stir again. Add flower for garnish.
