I recently was introduced to a new breed of Iced Teas. Didn’t know iced teas had breeds? Well, neither did I.
We all know Lipton Iced Teas. Full of HFS (industry lingo for High Fructose Corn Syrup) and artificial flavors. So what happens when Lipton comes out with all-natural, no HFS anywhere, iced tea flavors. We change our perspective. Enter Lipton Pureleaf. I heard about it, asked for samples, and voila – came up with a nice little cocktail using the Red Tea with Pomegranate and Blueberry. They also have Green Tea and White Tea flavors.
A while back I created an entire list of tea cocktails for T-Salon here in NYC. Don’t get me wrong, the tea flavors at T-Salon are incredible! But if you’re looking to make tea cocktails at home, this may be a good alternative.
Want to make that cocktail I came up with for yourself at home? Here’s the recipe:
2 oz. Lipton Pureleaf Red Tea with Pomegranate and Blueberry
1 1/2 oz. Rhum Clement Premierre Canne
juice of 1 lime wedge
1 tsp. superfine sugar
Directions: Shake all of the above in a mixing glass with ice. Strain into a chilled cocktail glass.
Garnish: seasonal berries
