- 500ml water
- 500g sugar
In a sauce pan, bring water to a boil and gradually mix in sugar while stirring with a wooden spoon. Stir until well blended to create a sugar syrup.
When the sugar syrup has a smooth consistency, remove from heat and pour the tea leaves in the mixture. Let it steep for 3 to 4 minutes.
Drain the mixture through a strainer to remove the tea leaves. Let it cool in the fridge.
Pour a drop of the tea-infused syrup in each glass and fill with sparkling wine or Champagne.
Recommendations to create a perfect tea-infused cocktail:
The amount of sugar used can be adjusted to taste. For those who prefer a less sweet drink, use only 400 grams of sugar added to the water.
For a tea cocktail stronger in taste, add a larger quantity of tea.
The tea syrup used for tea-infused cocktails can be kept refrigerated for up to one month thanks to the naturally preserving qualities of sugar.
This recipe will allow you to create about 50 glasses of tea-infused cocktails.
