Tea is so versatile and can be used for a multitude of different drink ideas; which is exactly what we like to promote here at Zteep Tea.
One of our favourite tea drinks to serve up is a tea-martini.
This martini makes a wonderful addition to a dinner party and can be served with either alcohol or THC/CBD (or both if you want to go there!)
If you are interested in adding THC/CBD to your tea-martini, we recommend using infused brown sugar.
Let’s get started, shall we?
What you will need
- 1-3 fl oz Strawberry Peach tea or London Eye (strong)
- Freshly squeezed lemon juice
- 1 tablespoon brown sugar or 1/2 fl oz honey (infused optional)
- Lemon wedges
- Vodka (if using Strawberry Peach tea)
- Gin (if using London Eye tea)
- Martini glass
Step 1: Brew your tea
Add 2-3 teaspoons of your desired tea to 12-18oz of boiling water.
This step can be modified based on your personal preference for strength and how much tea you are planning to brew at the time.
Next, cover your tea with a lid or small saucer to steep for 5 minutes.
For more information on brewing tea, view our previous post on how to brew and steep the perfect cup of tea.
Step 2: Chill
After steeping, let your tea chill in the freezer or an ice bath for 5 minutes.
DO NOT add ice directly to the tea, as this will water it down.
Step 3: Combine
Now you will create your tea-martini.
Combine your chilled tea with lemon juice, sugar (or honey) and vodka (or gin) in a cocktail shaker.
Now dry shake for 10 seconds.
Next, add ice and shake vigorously for 15 seconds.
Step 4: Serve
Pour into a chilled martini glass rimmed with cannabis-infused sugar and garnish with a lemon wedge.
Serve this amazing drink at your next dinner party or pour one for yourself!
