About this experience
One thing that I’ve noticed in every country around the world is that there is a history of tea. And in my opinion its one of the oldest mixed drinks in the world! But what separates tea from say cocktails or coffee? It’s the time devoted to it. Tea is not a rushed process, its a devotion and appreciation to time and preparation. This time is used across the world for a variety of purposes like celebration, relaxation, preparation, mourning, and even times of introduction. Through this course you will learn how to utilize tea in cocktails. We will review how to make tea syrups, infusing a spirit with tea, creating a cocktail with tea, and a few recipes including tea that can be made at home. The cocktail that we will be making is an interactive cocktail. You have the option to infuse your cocktail fully, partially, or not at all.
