Boulder Blues Greentini
This green tea cocktail recipe is an oldie but goodie here at The Tea Spot. It was chosen by the Southwest Airlines Spirit magazine nearly 10 years ago for their special feature on new trends in tea, and it stands the test of time.
Servings: 2 6-oz cocktail glass servings
- 1 tsp Boulder Blues tea leaves, yielding 1/4 cup sweetened tea concentrate
- 6 ounce Citron Vodka
- 1 ounce Cointreau
- Ice cubes
- Sugar crystals for the rim of the glasses (optional)
1) Make Boulder Blues tea concentrate: Steep 1 tsp of Boulder Blues green tea leaves in a 10 oz of water (175 F) for 3 minutes. Strain out the tea leaves. Sweeten with 1 tsp sugar, honey or agave. Chill the beverage.
2) Coat glass rims with sugar crystals. Fill a shaker with ice. Add green tea concentrate, vodka, and Cointreau. Shake well and strain into two martini glasses. Enjoy!
