Green tea balances well in a cocktail. It’s a nice soothing counterpoint to gin and goes well with the spiciness of ginger.
The result has the satisfying kick of a gin martini with some added layers of flavor.
- 1 ½ oz gin
- 1 oz ginger liqueur
- ¾ oz green tea, brewed
- Lots of ice
- Lemon for garnish
Brew 1 tea bag in 1 cup of water. Combine ¾ ounce of tea with gin, ginger liqueur, and ice in a cocktail shaker. Swirl the cocktail in the shaker until it is cold. Fill a martini glass with ice. Pour in the cocktail and garnish with a slice of lemon.
