The Nightcap

Bursting with blueberry flavor, we like this one at the end of the night. The anise-infused pomegranate juice feels unexpected in all the right ways and it will keep you sipping. We used oolong because we love the deep, earthy flavor, but if you want to play with the profile more, try another black tea variety. Makes two ~3oz servings.

Ingredients:

  • 2.5 oz blueberry verjus* 
  • 1-1/4 oz anise-infused pomegranate juice*
  • 1-1/4 oz oolong tea (or other non-sweet black tea), chilled 

*See recipes below


Directions:

  1. Combine all the ingredients in a glass and stir gently until mixed.
  2. Pour the drink into your preferred chilled cocktail glass.
