Green Paradise Vodka Fizz — Collaboration with Teatini
You all know how much we love tea.
We’ve baked using tea, made scones, smoothies and chia pudding using Japanese Matcha Green Tea, we’ve even experimented with slow cooked Silverside using our herbal ayurvedic blend, Tulsi Detox.
As creative as we’ve tried to be with our tea love, one thing we had never even considered making was….. TEA COCKTAILS! Why had we not thought of this??
One of the many benefits of engaging on social media is encountering lovely like-minded people who love sharing their gifts and talents. Imagine how excited we were when we met the delightful girls from Teatini on Instagram! These lovely sisters from Sydney hand craft cocktail creations to combine their two loves – tea and cocktails. By infusing loose leaf tea into their recipes they’ve managed to produce beautiful and unique cocktail ideas which are well worth a try! Their IG gallery truly is a sight to behold
We’ve been very excited to have Teatini use our Green Paradise green tea blend to create yet another cocktail to get the taste buds tingling. Here’s the recipe courtesy of the girls, why not give it a try?!
