Photo Credit:  Kayla Rocca

 

We had a blast at the Drake Hotel in Toronto last month, shaking up some new alcohol – free drink ideas at the bar with She Does the City.

 

Verbena Blues Lemonade (Left)

Ingredients:

2 tbsp Verbena Blues Tea
1/4 cup Agave or Honey
1/2 L Freshly Boiled Water
Lemonade
A Sprig of Mint
Ice
Optional: Soda Water

Method:

1. Steep Lemon Verbena Tea in boiled water for 7 minutes. Strain, and stir in agave or honey and let cool.

2. Fill glass with ice, and pour lemonade to the 3/4 mark. Add mint and top up the glass with the Verbena Blues tea, pouring gently so that it stays at the top.

Optional: Mix lemonade 50/50 with soda water for a less sweet drink.

 

Hibiscus Sunrise (Right)

Ingredients:

2 tbsp Southbrook Berry Blend
1/2 L Freshly Boiled Water
1 cup Freshly Squeezed Orange Juice
1 Orange Slice

Method:

1. Steep Southbrook Berry Blend in boiled water for 7 minutes. Strain, and let cool.

2. Fill glass with ice and pour orange juice to the halfway mark.

3. Tilt the glass and pour the cooled Southbrook Berry tea in gently to allow the liquids to remain separate.

4. Garnish with orange slice.

 

Moroccan Mint Twist (Middle)

Ingredients:

2 tbsp Fields of Green Tea
1 tsp Harvest Mint Tea
3 cups Freshly Boiled Water
Sugar
1 Lime
Ice

Method:

1. Steep Fields of Green Tea and Harvest Mint Tea in boiled water, and allow it to sit for five minutes. Steep for 5 minutes, strain, and let cool. Add sugar to taste.

2. Slice a lime very finely to create thin circles that will adhere to the inside of the glass.  Line the inside of the glass with these slices.

3. Fill glass with ice halfway and add chilled tea.
