Chocolate Mint Mar-TEA-ni
1/2 cup Cacao Mint Tea
1 1/2 shots of Godiva Chocolate Liqueur
1 1/2 shots of Bailey’s Almond Milk Liqueur
Mint Leaves (I used Chocolate Mint Leaves)
A couple hours before making your cocktail, steep your tea! I added a couple mint leaves to really draw out that flavor and let it sit in the tea while cooling down in the fridge. When you are ready to make your cocktail, in a cocktail shaker, combine ice, tea, Godiva Chocolate Liqueur, Bailey’s Almond Milk Liqueur, and a squirt of chocolate sauce. Shake. Shake. Shake. Shake it all up! Get out your martini glass and drizzle chocolate sauce in the glass, pour the shaken drink in the glass, top with mint leaves, and enjoy!
Iced Matcha Hot Chocolate
• 1 1/2 tsp Matcha
• 1/2 cup Almond Milk
• 3 tsp Hot Chocolate Mix
• 1 cup Ice
Firstly, measure out the almond milk and put it in the microwave for about a minute (I find that the warm almond milk helps the hot chocolate mix fully mix). While the almond milk is in the microwave, start preparing the matcha. Measure out the matcha powder and put it through a sifter. Once completely sifted, add a bit of water and use a whisk to combine totally. Set aside. Grab the warm almond milk and add the hot chocolate powder. Use an electric frother to combine. Once fully mixed, grab a glass (I normally use mason jars) and fill it with ice. Pour chocolate almond milk over first, filling it most of the way. Pour matcha over the top. Sprinkle with chocolate powder for decoration and enjoy!
Orange Ginger Whiskey Sour
• 3 ounces Venice Sunset tea concentrate
• 2 ounces whiskey
• 3/4 ounce agave nectar
• Squeeze of fresh orange juice
• 2 drops Bitters
• 1 egg white.
This recipe is so easy that you literally mix it all up in a cocktail shaker and pour it into your glass! Top it off with an orange peel garnish (or some orange zest YUM) and enjoy!
The overall taste of the cocktail is a bit orangey, while the ginger aspect of the tea pairs nicely with the whiskey. The tea really pulls out the flavor of the whiskey, so making this cocktail with a higher-end whiskey or bourbon might be a good move!
