Super Bowl Sunday Tea Cocktails

Posted by Teatulia on

It goes without saying that the Super Bowl is synonymous with parties and consuming copious amounts of game day fare and drinks. I don’t know about you, but sometimes beer just doesn’t hit the spot. Occasionally, I want an alcoholic beverage that is fresh, light, and inventive. That’s why I will be sipping on a tea cocktail this Sunday while watching the big game. Tea cocktails are all the rage in the world of mixology. Top restaurants and bars across the nation are fusing tea with alcohol because, simply put, it works. Tea harmonizes with liquor and muddled fruit and herbs astoundingly well. Today, I am going to share some amazing tea cocktail recipes with you so you can make some for you and your guests on Super Bowl Sunday.

For all you tequila fans out there, the Tequila Cilantro Cocktail is the drink for you. This mélange pairs perfectly with nachos. (Recipe below) The infusion has the right amount of kick and is pretty easy to make. The lemongrass simple syrup balances the bold tequila flavor while highlighting the freshness of the cilantro and lime. This recipe is a culinary touchdown.

Whether your team takes home theLombardi Trophy or not, your taste buds will be winning after sipping on the White Punch. This punch is perfect for your Super Bowl party! The peach liquor naturally brings out the peach notes in Teatulia’s White tea and the Cava adds some bubbly to the mix. The recipe makes plenty for a smaller gathering which means less work for the hostess. This is one of my favorites.

Looking to make a quick drink before kickoff? The Green Tea Ginger Cooler is the so simple, yet so refreshing. The ginger vodka and Teatulia Green Tea make a great duo in this potion.
