The Perfect Drinks for Valentine’s Day
1. Get Girly
– 8 tbsp. of Avazera’s Fruitea
– 2 cups of boiling water
– 1 cup of light and fruity wine
– ½ cup of Triple Sec
– garnish: oranges and lemons, sliced into circles
DIRECTIONS:Place the Fruitea in boiling water directly into a teapot (you many need one more, or split the portions in half) Let the tea infuse for 5-8 minutes and let cool. After combine all the ingredients into a pitcher. Once ready to serve, enjoy over ice! *If you would like a mocktail option: ½ cup of chilled Fruitea and ½ of lemonade, stir together and garnish with mint!
– 1 tbsp. of Avazera’s Strawberry Cream Chocolate Tea
– 1 cup of boiling water – ½ cup of heavy cream (if looking for a non-diary option you can use coconut cream)
– ½ cup of chocolate liqueur
– 1 tbsp. of vodka
DIRECTIONS: In a teapot, add the loose leaf tea to the boiling water and let steep for 4-7 minutes. Combine all the ingredients into a sauce pan over medium heat, stirring constantly. Once hot, divide evenly among heat proof glasses. If desired, top each cup with whipped cream and a sprinkle of cacao.
3. Happily Ever After
DIRECTIONS: Add the vodka and loose leaf tea to a pint-jar. Cover the jar well, give the vodka a shake and set it somewhere out of place. After 30 minutes the vodka should be distinctly tea-flavoured. If you want a stronger flavour, just let the vodka sit for around 2 hours. Add the tea-infused vodka, Elderflower liqueur, and lemon juice to a cocktail shaker. Cover the cocktail shaker and shake for about 30 seconds. Strain the drink into the glass and enjoy cold!
