GIN, TEA & TONIC – THE PERFECT SUMMER DRINK
This summer why not add a fresh spin to your gin & tonic and give it a touch of empiric sky tea? In our humble opinion, empiric sky compliments gin excellently, emphasizing the tones of juniper, citrus and black pepper. The result is a super smooth and refreshing drink.
But don’t just trust us, try it for yourself and let us know what you think.
Here is how we did it:
One part good quality gin – we used Hernö Gin
One part good quality tonic – we used Fever Tree
One part cold empiric sky tea – we used 1 tea bag for 1 dl water
A slice of lemon to garnish
Start by brewing the tea (this can even be done the day before). For coldbrewing leave the infusion in the fridge for 2 hours. For hotbrewing, brew the tea for 5 min and leave to cool.
Next find a high glass and fill it with ice. Pour in the gin, top with tonic and empiric sky tea, garnish with lemon and serve!
At Emeyu we love experimenting with tea. We think it gives an unexpected sometimes healthier and always complimentary edge to many classic drinks and food recipes.
