I Love Lemon® Gin Fizz
I Love Lemon® Tea Bags*
1 1/4 cups hot water
1 tablespoon sugar
¾ cup gin
1 ¼ cups seltzer
4 strips of lemon or orange peel (for garnish)
Yield: Serves 4
*Variations: You may use Bigelow Lemon Lift®
or Green Tea with
Lemon® in place of the I Love Lemon® tea (use
only 4 tea bags instead of 6), or for a raspberry flavored
cocktail, substitute 6 tea bags of Bigelow Red
RaspberryTM Herb Tea.
This refreshing drink is perfect for summer!
Bigelow® I Love LemonTM Herb tea gives
a new twist to a classic bar drink.
Place tea bags into a measuring cup and add 1 ¼ cups hot
water. Let brew for 3 minutes. Remove tea bags.
Add sugar and stir until it dissolves. To chill place tea
concentrate in the freezer for 30-45 minutes.
To make a pitcher of four drinks, mix ¾ cup of the cooled
tea with ¾ cup of gin and 1 ¼ cups seltzer. Add ice
and lemon or orange peels for garnish.
To make one cocktail, take three tablespoons (1.5 oz) of the
cooled tea and mix it with three tablespoons (1.5 oz) of the gin in
a Highball glass. Top with 5 tablespoons (2.5 oz) of seltzer and
serve on the rocks, with a twist of lemon or orange.
