You can use Calm + Collect tea as the foundation of some festive drinks this holiday, just takes a little creativity and experimenting.
Try this refreshing Rosa Mint Julep that you can have either with or without alcohol.
Rosa Mint julep
Calm + Collect Herbal infusion - ½ cup
Spring fresh mint
Rose petals (optional)
Rose Simple Syrup - 2 teaspoons
To make boozy: use ¼ cup of infusion and 1 to 2 measures of Bourbon
First make a cold tea infusion:
To do this pour hot water into a mason jar, add one Calm + Collect tea bag and leave to cool. For best results, infuse overnight in the fridge.
Make rose water simple syrup
The rose water simple syrup is easy to make!
Just simmer 1 cup sugar and 1 cup water in a small pot until the sugar dissolves.
Remove and let it cool
Add in 1 teaspoon of rose water… we used this one, which is great!
Gently muddle mint with rose simple syrup in the bottom of a highball or tall glass, fill with a good handful of ice, add in Calm + Collect herbal infusion. You can top up with splash of sparkling water or for a kick add a measure (or two) of Bourbon - garnish with a mint sprig and rose petals (optional)
