With the start of autumn and the beautiful rich red tones that it brings, this Cocktail Friday we just couldn’t resist the bright romantic red of Cup Above Tea‘s Pomegranate Greenteani. Vodka mixed back with Cointreau and pomegranate juice infused with green tea sounded just too delicious; don’t forget the cherry to really wow your guests!
30 ml vodka or gin (your choice!)
15 ml Cointreau
90 ml pomegranate juice
3 tbsp Cup Above Tea Himalayan Pine green tea leaves
1 x lime (juiced)
Cherry to garnish the glass
Infuse the tea leaves in the pomegranate juice using a tea infuser basket. It’s best to do this a few hours before you’re ready to drink the cocktail, or even the day before, and you can keep the tea infused juice in the fridge until you’re ready to use it. The longer the leaves infuse, the stronger the tea flavour.
After you’ve done that, it couldn’t be simpler.
Combine all the ingredients in a cocktail shaker and top with ice. Shake vigorously and strain into a martini glass.
Garnish with a few vibrant cherries or a twist of lime.
