Serves 4

Serve: In a pitcher
Glass: Collins

Ingredients
  • 10 oz. teapigs lemon & ginger tea (4 tea temples)(chilled)
  • 5 oz. St. Germain Elderflower Liqueur
  • 1 ¼ oz. Benedictine D.O.M.(or omit and add 1 oz. more simple syrup* instead)
  • 2½ oz. Fresh lemon juice
  • 2 ½ oz. Simple syrup
  • Top with soda water to your liking
    Method

      Start by brewing some tea. To make the process easier, brew 4 cups of tea with 4 teapigs lemon & ginger tea temples to ensure you have enough for the recipe. Steep for a bit longer than you would for a cup of tea to make sure the flavour stands out - 10 minutes. Remove tea temples and chill tea before use. Add all ingredients, except the soda water, into a pitcher filled with ice. Add garnish and stir until all ingredients are mixed. Top with ice and soda water. Pour into a Collins glass to serve.

          How to make simple syrup

            Pour equal parts water and sugar in a saucepan. 1 cup of sugar and 1 cup of water will make 1 ½ cups of simple syrup once dissolved. Stir the simple syrup and place the saucepan over medium heat. Heat ingredients until dissolved.
