A tea cocktail made with tea, rum, pineapple juice, and lemon juice. It has notes of pineapple, papaya, and citrus to give it a tropical splash. The perfect summer tea cocktail!
Playing mixologists and creating refreshing and exciting cocktails is part of what we love doing at S&C! It’s a passion experimenting with unique flavors, herbs, spirits, and ingredients.
I’m also a fan of tea cocktails and using tea as a base is nothing new! I once ordered one in Charleston that they found the recipe for in their historical archives from 1783! They’re always light and refreshing, but complex with layered herbs and ingredients in the tea.
Adding flavors and ingredients that compliment them is my specialty.
For this recipe, we used Teavana’s newest addition to their line of mixology-inspired teas, Beach Bellini. And yes it smells and tastes as good as it sounds.
I could bottle that fragrance up and smell it everyday!! It has notes of pineapple, papaya, and citrus to give it a tropical splash.
We added some fresh muddled pineapple, rose petals, lemon juice, rum and sweetened it with Teavana’s rock sugar.
Hand me another one, please!
