You may already know that tea brings plenty of benefits. That’s probably the reason that it's been enjoyed by many people ever since. Fortunately, with today’s innovation, there are already plenty of ways to enjoy tea, hence eliminating the mundane way of drinking.
However, do note that even if you mix and match teas with other beverages, you can still enjoy its benefits, regardless if it’s Sage, Oolong, or English Breakfast.

I'm so excited to prepare so many #recipes of #drinks, #cocktails, #Moonshine, #food - I'm ready to get down to work! #Moonshinerecipe
Green Tea-Infused Gin Sour
Infuse your gin by mixing two to three green tea bags. Soak the tea bags for four hours, shake the mixture frequently. To prepare the cocktail, pour the infused gin, lemon or lime juice, and honey in a shaker. Mix well and add ice. Transfer into a chilled cocktail glass. Lastly, garnish with a floating star anise pod.
Star anise is a fascinating cocktail addition that emphasizes spicy or herbal notes. It produces a lovely spicy smell as you drink, particularly if you toast it a little first. On top of that, it looks great as a cocktail topper too.
Bourbon Tea Cocktail
Sweet tea is said to be a popular drink in the summertime. But it can be enhanced by the addition of a shot of booze. This easy sweet bourbon tea mix is sweetened by limoncello. The delicious citrus liqueur does marvel at a simple drink like this.
For this recipe, you'll need bourbon whiskey, limoncello, and freshly brewed iced tea. You just have to mix all of the ingredients and serve over ice. You can also add a slice of lemon for garnish.
Practically any bourbon whiskey will be fine for this recipe. It's also a cocktail that's basic enough to justify experimenting with various brands.
For the tea, use the hot brewing technique to extract more flavor. This should take only around five minutes, depending on the kind of tea you use. When the tea has reached its peak of taste, put it in the fridge until ready to make the drink.
Peach Iced Tea Cocktail
This simple recipe needs just three ingredients. The bonus is you don't have to add tea bags. It's also very fast to make. All you need are unsweetened peach tea, peach vodka, and simple syrup.
To make the cocktail:
- Add all ingredients to a shaker and mix thoroughly.
- Pour in a nice glass over ice.
- Garnish with fresh mint leaves or peach slices.
If you prepared a batch of the cocktail and have extras, chill the concoction for up to three days in the refrigerator. Remember that the alcohol's concentration will be reduced over time. Therefore, it's strongly suggested that it be consumed within 24 hours.
Ginger Tea Cocktail
This ginger tea concoction is a delectable combination of cognac and green tea. It also has a delicious hint of mint and ginger. Fresh ginger and mint impart a punch that is certain to awaken your taste buds.
To begin, mix the simple syrup with ginger and mint for an extra burst of flavor. Add cognac and freshly brewed green tea. Mix until well combined. Pour into ice-filled glass. Top with mint leaves and serve.

Thai Iced Tea Latte
Lovers of tea lattes will appreciate the spicy Thai Iced tea recipe (not to be confused with the Hong Kong-style milk tea). There's a little spicy cream on a strong black tea backdrop and the liquors are good kickers. You'll discover that this drink is a real pleasure.
