New Thing #335: Drink a Tea-based Cocktail

As a nice change of pace tonight, Shauna whipped up my new thing of the day: an Orange Blossom Oolong Tea cocktail.

After attending a tea mixology seminar last week she’s been eager to try out her new found knowledge. Plus, they sent her home with said orange blossom oolong syrup and some recipes.

The syrup itself is a normal simple syrup with tea used instead of water. Why I never thought of flavoured simple syrups before now is beyond me. And this little lemon-gin-oolong ditty knocked our socks off.

Now I think some experimenting is in order.
