Cocktail DuJour: Kusmi Tea KUSMIPOLITAN

20140323-220145.jpgLast week, I had one of the best drinks I’ve had in a while (if ever — it’s that amazing)! Kusmi Tea launched a new tea set, Les Glaces de Kusmi (Kusmi Iced Teas), which is a compilation of 12 of their tea flavors (2 sachets of each), that are their top picks for summer.

While at the launch event Kusmi was serving up their KUSMIPOLITAN, a delicious vodka-based drink that as you may have expected tasted like iced tea (and you could barely taste the alcohol). It was yummy! Here’s the recipe:

1.3 oz vodka

4 tsp Anastasia Tea Syrup (create by infusing 7 tsp of tea in 3 cups of simple syrup for seven days in a dark place.)

1/4 cup iced Anastasia tea

Directions: Fill a shaker with ice cubes and add all ingredients. Mix will then stir for 15 seconds. Mix well then stir for 15 seconds. Strain into a glass and garnish with an orange twist (optional).
