Jasmine Tea Cocktail
We attended a family gathering this summer and took on the assignment to bring "drinks". We love this because we can incorporate several premium teas into an eclectic style pot luck! We brew ahead and cart over to the party in carafes.
This time one of our offerings was citrus-y cocktail blended with Jasmine green tea. The light floral fragrance paired with the citrus juices made a deliciously layered drink. Flowers, sweet tart, & zesty lemon and grapefruit. One guest claimed this to be her next favorite summer drink to enjoy at the lake (or beach!).
We used our Jasmine Monkey King
. A premium Green and White Tea blend.
- 1/2 cup honey
- 1/2 cup hot water
- 6 cups Jasmine Monkey King - brewed strong
- 3/4 cup gin
- 3/4 cup limoncello

Make honey syrup by stirring together the honey and hot water until fully dissolved. Combine honey syrup, tea, gin, limoncello, lemon juice, grapefruit juice to large pitcher, add club soda and lemon slices.
