How to add tea to your cocktails:Green tea simple syrup

This article, posted on The Spirit, offers a couple of ways to infuse Earl Grey and Green tea into your vodka and rum to give your vodka martinis or Long Island iced tea (which doesn’t even have tea in it) a tea-laden kick.

The recipe that caught my eye the most was the recipe posted for Jasmine tea simple syrup. This could be a wonderful alternative to the simple syrup recipes I offered in my Lemon Soju and Saeng Cake recipes.

Green tea simple syrup

1/2 cup Jasmine green tea
1/2 cup Organic sugar

Brew the Jasmine green tea as directed. Combine the tea and sugar in a smal saucepan. Bring to a boil over high heat, then reduce to a simmer until sugar is fully dissolved. Let cool to room temperature, then store in an airtight container.

  1. Oh Yes, feelin' all healthy already, excellent way to have my vodka. Have my drink doctored with powerful anti-oxidant, now what should we eat with that? LOL.

  2. This is a great idea. I love the fresh flavor that green tea can incorporate. Thanks!
