Blood Orange & Dark Chocolate Tea Cocktail



Extras for garnish (optional):

  • 5 drops of chocolate bitters
  • Edible flowers
  • Fresh blueberries



Step 1: Tea-Infused Vodka

Start by steeping 60ml of vodka with 2 teaspoons of Blood Orange & Dark Chocolate Tea. Let it steep for about two hours, infusing the vodka.

Step 2: Strain and Shake

After the tea has worked its magic, strain the tea-infused vodka into a shaker. This step ensures a smooth, aromatic base for your cocktail.

Step 3: Muddle and Mix

In the shaker, muddle a handful of blueberries. 

Step 4: Balance It Out

Add 30ml of lemon juice to the shaker, followed by 15ml of simple syrup. Then 30ml of egg whites. 

Step 5: Shake It Up

Begin with a dry shake (without ice) to ensure the ingredients are thoroughly mixed. Then, add ice and give it a good wet shake to chill and further aerate the cocktail. The result should be a frothy, ethereal concoction that's almost too beautiful to drink.

Step 6: Serve and Garnish

Double strain your cocktail into a glass filled with ice. To add a touch of elegance, garnish with chocolate bitters, edible flowers and a few extra blueberries. 

Sip and Enjoy

This cocktail is perfect for unwinding after a long day or for sharing with friends on a Summer evening. So, raise your glass, take a sip, and let the refreshing zest of this cocktail bring a smile to your face. Cheers!
