We still have some tasty, but potent candied ginger leftover from the holidays. It might not last much longer since it makes for such a tasty tea cocktail.

Green Tea with Gin and Ginger

  • 1 green teabag
  • 1 tbsp candied ginger
  • 1 oz gin
  • 1/2 oz Lillet
  • 1/2 tsp honey

Set a kettle to boil. Put ginger in one mug and the liquor in another. Cover the ginger with boiling water and let steep for 5-10 minutes. Return the kettle to the stove. Put teabag in the mug with the liquor and fill with boiling water to the boiling mark. Stir in honey. Muddle the ginger in the other mug. Hold a small sieve over the steeping tea and use the muddler to strain the ginger liquid into the tea mug. Serve hot.
