Even better, today’s cocktail recipe infuses tea into the classic American spirit (and one of my personal favorites), Bourbon, sure to bring on the fireworks!
Hope everyone has a happy and safe weekend – Happy 4th!
The American Classic
2 oz. Peachy Oolong-infused bourbon (recipe follows)
2 Dashes peach bitters (recommended: Fee Brothers)
2 Dashes Cointreau
Shake well and strain into a chilled cocktail glass. Garnish with orange wheel.
Peachy Oolong-Infused Bourbon
one 750 mL bottle bourbon (recommended: Bulleit)
2 heaping tablespoons Peachy Oolong
One vanilla bean, split
Add tea leaves directly into full bottle, replace cap and shake vigorously to thoroughly combine. Allow to “steep” for 4-5 hours, shaking every 30 minutes for full incorporation.
