Teabags and tranquillitea


The Darjeeling Darling Tea Recipe
1/2 cup steeped Dali Darjeeling tea
1/2 cup organic sugar
2 organic blood oranges
3 large organic strawberries
1/3 cup black cherry concentrate
2 ounces vodka
(Note:  You will have enough simple syrup and fruit purée for several cocktails. This recipe will make enough to fill a small (standard) martini glass.  For a larger glass, simply double the recipe.)
To make the simple syrup, combine the brewed tea with sugar in a small saucepan.  Place over medium-high heat and cook until the sugar is completely dissolved, stirring occasionally, about 3-4 minutes. Set aside to cool.
In a blender, add the juice of the blood oranges, strawberries and black cherry concentrate.  Blend until well-combined.  Strain purée through a fine mesh sieve, discarding any seeds.
Add a handful of ice to a cocktail shaker.  To that, add 1 ounce Darjeeling simple syrup, 3 ounces of fruit purée and 2 ounces vodka.  Shake vigorously until very cold.  
Pour into your desired glass and serve immediately.

Making a Hot Toddy

tea-amo:

For a bit of history, the Hot Toddy is thought to have originated in Scotland, either introduced by a member of the East India Trading Company or adopted from the Indian phrase for drink, toddy. It is a mixed alcoholic beverage that has many incarnations and modifications. Though the original and traditional Toddy is made with boiling water and spices, not tea, newer incarnations have creatively added tea! The cool thing about the Toddy is that there’s many ways to mix it and drink it!

Ingredients:

  • 1 shot of the Whiskey of your choice
  • 1 cup of hot/boiling water
  • 1 tea bag of your choice (I would recommend spicier teas like Chai or a dark Oolong or Rooibos tea)
  • Honey, 1 tbsp is recommended, however you can be as generous as you please
  • 1/2 a lemon for juicing (or store bought lemon juice for cooking, 1/4 cup), 1 slice for garnish if you want

How to make yourself a Hot Toddy:

  1. Coat the bottom of your mug generously with honey, as much as your heart contents to do so.
  2. Start heating your water.
  3. Add your shot of whiskey and juice the half a lemon (or add your 1/4 cup of lemon juice).
  4. Brew your tea separately.
  5. Once your tea is brewed to your liking, add it to your Hot Toddy, stir, and enjoy!
