This is officially the perfect cocktail for those cold winter days when you’re craving something delicious to warm you up. It’s the definition of cozy – it’s like wrapping yourself with a warm blanket, which was why this was the perfect cocktail to sip at while we made our arm-knitting yarn blanket.
Now, if you’ve never had a Blueberry Tea before then you’re in for a sweet sweet surprise. It’s a simple cocktail, calling only for Amaretto, Grand Marnier and Earl Grey Tea, but the end result is a really complex flavour. It’s no wonder this bevy dominates the specialty coffee and tea menus at restaurants and cafes.
Spoiler alert: this drink doesn’t actually have blueberries in it, but there is a fruity taste reminiscent of blueberries. So if you’re here with the expectation of blueberries, you will not be disappointed.
- 1 oz of Amaretto
- 1 oz of Grand Marnier
- 4-5 oz of Earl Grey Tea (if you’re not a fan of Earl Grey tea, then you can go ahead and swap it for Orange Pekoe)
- Orange wheel
- Add the amaretto and orange liqueur to a brandy snifter or mug.
- Top with Earl Grey tea and garnish with an orange wheel.
