Here’s another good cocktail that I made up with Drink of the Week. This time we used green tea as inspiration. And what goes with green tea? Ginger, of course.

And so the Green Tea and Ginger Cocktail was born. We used regular green tea, Domaine de Canton French Ginger Liqueur for the ginger element, and gin to make a cocktail that is light and soothing with just a hint of ginger spiciness. Here’s the recipe:

Green Tea and Ginger Cocktail
(makes one cocktail)

Ingredients:

    1 1/2 oz gin (preferably the slightly herb-y Tru Gin)
    1 oz Ginger Liqueur
    3/4 oz green tea, brewed
    Lots of ice
    Lemon for garnish


Directions:

Brew 1 tea bag in 1 cup of water. Combine 3/4 ounce of tea with gin, ginger liqueur, and ice in a cocktail shaker. Swirl the cocktail in the shaker until it is cold. Don’t over-shake or you might bruise the gin.

Fill a martini glass with ice. Pour in the cocktail and garnish with a slice of lemon. Enjoy.
