Christmas Cold Tea

You may have noticed a pattern in some of my recipes, and that’s my love for equal portions of vodka and dry vermouth. For one, it adds a bit of subtle character to the base spirit. Secondly, it’s a great way to utilize dry vermouth, considering most people have no idea what to do with it. In addition, it’s a great way to booze up a cocktail with a budget in mind, especially when creating punches, and drinks that are nice, light and refreshing!

With that said, this established the template for what I wanted to create here. It’s super light and refreshing, but with hints of holiday flavour. Not to mention, it’s low in sugars, which won’t add to your holiday gains.

I was lucky enough to grab one of David’s Tea Advent Calendars for the holiday season. Being as obsessed as I am with tea, I loved that I was able to experiment with all these different flavours! Sure enough, I found one that I instantly knew I had to create a cocktail with. It’s the ‘Walnut Orange Scone’ flavour provided by David’s Tea and it is outstanding. I can’t wait for you to test this out at home and become as obsessed as I’ve been for COLD TEA.
