Summer Cocktails with a Tea Twist
Summer has arrived, and in traditional British fashion the sunshine is nowhere to be seen! But don’t let a little rain dampen your spirits. These cocktails are so easy to make, and will hopefully brighten up your weekends! The first, “Milk & Two Sugars” is a playful, British take on Piña Colada using fruity and tangy ‘Signature Strawberries & Cream’ infusion tea. The other is a floral and refreshing Chamomile & Lemon Cooler using ‘Signature Chamomile’ buds. We’ll hope you love them as much as we do!
- Coconut milk. 200ml
- Ringtons Singature Strawberries & Cream. 2 tbs
- White rum. 50ml
- Agave nectar. 2 tbs
- Strawberries. 5
- Ice cubes
Add the coconut milk and Strawberries & Cream Infusion to a small saucepan. Place on a medium heat, and when the milk starts to simmer, turn the heat off and leave to cool and infuse. When cooled, sieve the milk into a measuring jug.
In a highball glass, add the rum and agave nectar. Slice 4 strawberries and throw them in too. Muddle and mash the contents with a spoon, and divide the liquid between 2 glasses. Add some ice cubes and top up with the coconut milk. Stir well and garnish with a strawberry.
- Water. 100ml
- Sugar. 50g
- Ringtons Signature Pure Camomile. 1 tbs
- Lemon. ¼
- Ice cubes
- Sparkling water
Add the water and sugar to a small saucepan, and bring to a boil on a medium heat. When it’s boiling, add the chamomile buds and take the pan off the heat, and leave to cool and infuse. When cooled, sieve the syrup into a measuring jug and chill in the fridge.
Add some ice cubes to a highball glass. Cut the lemon into 2 wedges and squeeze one half into the glass. Add 25ml (1 shot) of the camomile syrup and top up with sparkling water. Garnish with the other lemon wedge.
