Today I want to share with you a cocktail that is perfect for enjoying at home or while on a Zoom/Facetime/Skype event with your friends and loved ones.
To take things to the next level you could even all make the same cocktail at home and enjoy while we are #ApartTogether. I’ve been doing this over the past month with double dates, girls brunches, and family hangouts and there’s something about sharing a common recipe that makes that physical distance less important.
Host a Boozy Tea Party
This recipe is inspired by the Tipsy Tea Party we had at the Camby Hotel in Phoenix, Arizona. I loved the idea of this adult spin on a traditional tea party. We still had all the essentials – like finger foods, fancy dessert bites. The boozy tea was served in vintage teapots and teacups. If you’ve seen my teacup collection, you’ll know I was in HEAVEN!
Boozy Tea Drink Recipe
The obvious starting place for this boozy tea cocktail recipe is sweetened ice tea! I used Pure Leaf Tea Wild Blackberry & Sage but you can use your favorite homemade or store-bought sweet tea. I paired it with gin and Lo-Fi vermouth for a fun cocktail that is perfect for summer. It’s slightly fragrant and super smooth. Enjoy it as the weather starts to warm up and you’re craving something refreshing but still fun.
