If you thought our blends were just for drinking hot and poured straight from a teapot, then think again. Our teas can be used in many wonderful ways, from cold brews and cocktails to ice-creams and baking.
Today we're creating a cocktail, using our Deliciously Decadent blend, currently on special offer (in fuso bag form) in our online tea shop.
We call this cocktail Divinely Decadent and once you've taken a sip, you'll understand why. A definite summer drink to sip on a warm summer's evening.
Okay, to start you do need a bit of preparation. Infuse 50g ( or 15 fuso bags) of Deliciously Decadent tea in 70cl of vodka. Infuse for 24-48 hours then either sieve the loose leaves or take out the bags.
This is your base.
For a single serve
50ml of your infused vodka
10ml of Heston's alcoholic fruit cup ( or Pimms if you can't find a fruit cup )
50ml of grape juice
a squeeze of lime
soda water to finish.
fresh lime or dehydrated lime to garnish
Put all the ingredients apart from the soda water into a cocktail shaker and shake
Pour into a cocktail glass or teacup and top with soda- we use glass teacups so you can see the pretty liquid and after all it is a tea cocktail.
Garnish with lime or other fruit.
Sip and enjoy.
