A Ginger Mint Tea Moment

Every month or so we get together with good friends for a casual cocktail hour. C came up with the most refreshing beverage using Sunpu Boucha from Norbu Tea, though any of their amazing green teas will work beautifully.
1/2 lemon (cut into wedges)
  • 1-inch piece fresh ginger (peeled and sliced)
  • 4 sprigs fresh mint
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons honey
  • Club soda
  • Green tea
  • Vodka
  • Ice

    • Muddle lemon, ginger, mint, and honey in a glass. Stir in equal parts green tea, vodka, and club soda. Top with crushed ice.
    Perfect for a hot, muggy evening as the kids ran around in the backyard, splashing each other with cups of water.
