Celebrating World Gin Day at PekoeTea
Saturday the 12th of June 2021 is International World Gin Day so I thought I would share my recipe for Apothecary Rose G&Tea Iced Tea. The botanicals in the Secret Garden Gin Teas really pick up the flavours of a gin and tonic, except there's no alcohol involved. This iced tea recipe is an ideal summer alcohol-free drink and it's very refreshing on a hot day. Don't be tempted to skip the cucumber garnish, it really enhances the botanicals in this iced tea giving a delicious refreshing flavour.
A couple of cucumber slices to garnish
1 litre of just boiled water
Add the tea to 1 litre of freshly boiled water.
Stir and leave to infuse for 6 minutes.
Strain the hot tea to remove the leaves.
Wait for the tea to cool to room temperature then put in the fridge until cooled.
Add a couple of ice cubes to a glass, pop in some slices of cucumber garnish.
Fill the glass to 2/3 full with iced tea, top up with lemonade and enjoy.
