Jasmine Tea Salon Cocktail
IngredientsServes Serves 1
1½ oz (45 ml) Hendrick’s Gin
2 oz (60 ml) Jasmine Green Tea*
½ oz (15 ml) lemon juice
½ oz (15 ml) Simple Syrup**
fresh or dehydrated lemon wheel**, for garnish
- In a mixing glass with cubed ice, combine gin, cooled tea, lemon juice and Simple Syrup. Stir to chill, then strain into a teacup. Garnish with a lemon wheel.
- * Steep 1 jasmine green tea bag in 1 cup (250 ml) boiling water for 1 minute. Remove tea bag and let tea cool to room temperature.
- **To make Dehydrated Lemon Wheels, slice 2 lemons evenly into wheels, approximately ⅛-in (0.25 cm) thick. Place slices in a dehydrator at 135 F (57 C) for 8 hours, or place on a parchment-lined baking sheet and bake at lowest oven temperature (convection if possible) until completely dry, about 4 to 5 hours. Without convection, rotate sheets every 1 to 2 hours. Store in an airtight container; will keep indefinitely in a cool, dark place.
