We are lucky enough to live close-by to our friendship group, meaning we often get together to hang, walk the dogs and take it in turns hosting dinner parties every now and then. Recently we had been discussing trying out some tea cocktails after Becca had been given Kew’s Teas, Tonics and Tipples by a friend. Inside is recipe upon recipes of different ways to drink tea and we were totally inspired to give some our own twist. As we didn’t want to sit around getting actually drunk (rather than just tea drunk) by ourselves, we invited our girl pals over to help us taste test these recipes! We will be posting a few recipes over the coming month so keep an eye out for our series of tea cocktails perfect for those summer garden parties that are almost upon us!
We started off with a simple cocktail using Moominmamma’s magic potion tea, a black tea with rhubarb and strawberry flavours. Becca’s obsessed with the Moomins and Kate had bought her this tea for her birthday. If you haven’t tried any of the Moomin range of tea, do take a look, even just for the names of the blends!
Here’s what you need:
- 25cl Rhubarb tea (any blend will do)
- 25cl Elderflower cordial or cold brewed elderflower tea
- Prosecco or any sparkling wine to top up the glass
- Garnish (or foliage as we kept calling it) of your choice – we used mint and rosemary.
