Editor Recipe Notes

Once in a while, you focus on certain ingredients. And somehow, Rooibos-Vanilla Tea is like the Elderflower for Cocktails =).
What I like about tea is that it contains no sugar, has a lot of flavors that you can control, and is very versatile to use.
Instead of always mixing a Drink with Juice, you should try some strongly brewed tea. That’s what we did with the Botanist T cocktail. You can play around with some different styles of Gin and the amount of tea. You could even make a twist and serve it in a coupette glassware. The world is open to you =)
