Berry Black Tea Cocktail

Berry Black Tea Cocktail


  • serves 1
  • 1 English Breakfast tea bag
  • 1/2 cup hot water
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 2 oranges
  • 3 large strawberries
  • 2 ounces vodka


Steep the black tea bag in the hot water for five minutes. Remove the tea bag, pour the tea into a small saucepan, and add sugar. Warm over medium-high heat until the sugar has completely dissolved, stirring occasionally. Set aside to cool.

Add the strawberries and juice of the oranges into a blender and pulse until smooth. You can choose to strain the purée through a fine mesh sieve or use as is.

Fill a cocktail shaker two-thirds full with ice. Add 1 ounce of the sweetened black tea, 3 ounces of fruit purée and 2 ounces vodka. Shake for 15 seconds, until ice-cold. Serve immediately.
