cocktail emporium union station — opening autumn 2019
February 22, 2017
"... The idea to make crystal themed cocktails first drifted into our heads when we spotted The Cocktail Emporium’s faceted gem-like glassware. As soon as we had delivered our new set safely home the creative wheels started turning, and in the end this hazy purple tea-infused magic potion is what we brewed up. Don’t worry- no cauldron required!
Yields one 6oz glass.
Make a tea concentrate by steeping 3 teaspoons of Grape Freeze green tea in 4 oz boiling water for 2-3 mins, let cool.
Pour some sugar crystals into a small dish, use a citrus wedge to rim each glass.
In a cocktail shaker add 1 oz Chambord, 1 oz Gin, about a teaspoon Lavender Blueberry syrup, and the cooled tea concentrate. Shake until combined and pour over ice!
Garnish with a stick of rock candy."
