Berry Tea Cocktail
This Berry Tea Cocktail recipe post was made in partnership with Empress Gin. Recipe and ideas are my own.
What do you get when you mix afternoon tea and happy hour? The Berry Tea Cocktail! This soothing mix of herbal tea, sweet honey, fresh strawberries, tart lemon juice, sparkling water, and Empress Gin make the most relaxing cocktail for any occasion. Enjoy your own high tea experience from the comfort of your home with the Berry Tea Cocktail.
If your favorite spirit is also gin, (like me) then you’ll love using Empress Gin for your cocktails, especially with tea! Empress Gin’s taste, aroma, and hue provide the perfect base for not only aesthetically pleasing cocktails but also deliciously tasting ones!
And in addition to using traditional botanicals, Empress Gin also includes a signature blend of black tea and butterfly pea blossom. The butterfly pea blossom is what gives the gin the indigo color and this exotic herb delivers a warm herbal earthiness to the gin. This spirit uses only the highest quality ingredients with no artificial colors, so you can enjoy your libation knowing you’re drinking the best quality gin.
Handcrafted in small batch copper-pot stills form Victoria Distillers, this gin is inspired by the legendary Fairmont Empress Hotel in Victoria, British Columbia.
