Shake this drink well and strain it into a cocktail glass. Voila!
Ginger Green Tea Cocktail
Give yourself a treat of a complex combination of flavours in this cocktail that blends green tea, ginger, and cognac. Not only will this drink give you a spicy kick of ginger but also of its finely sliced ginger roots used for garnishing. Do not forget to give this cocktail a touch of citrusy lemon juice to enhance its taste.
Apple Tea Cocktail
Rim a martini glass with sugar and fill it with ice cubes. Pour an ounce of vodka, green tea concoction, and a half cup of apple cider. For some sweetness, fill the rest of the glass with apple juice. Lastly, garnish with mint leaves and an apple slice. For a little bit of tangy flavour, add a few drops of lemon juice and you are set for the evening!
Matcha and Gin
We all love our matcha tea, but how about having it in the form of a cocktail? The best part is the ingredients for this cocktail are readily available at home. All you need is a teaspoon of matcha powder, lemon juice, two ounces of gin, and simple syrup. Mix these components in a shaker with lots of ice cubes and strain them into a cold glass. Garnish with a slice of lemon and few mint leaves.
Rye-spiked Cinnamon Cocktail
Su Jung Kwa is an old-style Korean tea made from cinnamon, spices, ginger, pine nuts, and dried dates that are commonly served as a dessert or an after-dinner drink. By adding rye whiskey, the beverage gets a modern twist with a subtle kick. The flavour of this cocktail is truly refreshing and unique.
