Hot Tea Cocktail

10.17.12


 

Ahhh... Fall! What a perfect time to sip something hot - hot tea and booze?! Who would've thought! A mug (or six) of my Hot Tea Cocktail is the perfect fall companion - not only will it keep you toasty but it'll jag you up to high satisfaction! It's rather uncomplicated - considerably cultivated - and it'll leave you positively illuminated! Here's how I do: fill a mug three forths of the way up with your favorite piping hot black tea - I'm loving this assam/vanilla infusion as you can plainly see. Next, add your vanilla, fancy brown sugar and bourbon - give it a splash of cream, take a whiff and you'll pant for certain! Proceed with caution as the contents will indeed be blazing - after just one steamy sip you'll be raving and praising! I urge you to mix your mug to taste - for my fandangled portion suggestions may leave your tongue a little scathed. Hey, I take my cocktails stiff, don't judge - play around with the mixology... but just a smudge. I surely hope you give this Hot Tea Cocktail a lick - aside from being pretty buzz worthy, it's the perfect pick-me-up for when your feeling sick!
