All prizes were supplied by Mamacat’s Q. Tea . Snappy Gourmet did not receive any compensation. All thoughts and opinions are my own.
Now how about a fun spring cocktail using Mamacat’s Q. Tea??? This Ruby Slipper Springtini is a BEAUTIFUL color! Mamacat’s Q. Tea has a great line of teas including Ruby Slippers, Golden Slumbers, Emerald Wonderland, Amber Maharani, Blossom Hill, and Casablanca Mist. This Ruby Slippers Springini is the perfect “martini” for spring or a ladies night out! It’s easy to make, and did I mention even my husband enjoyed it???? Mr. Steak & Potatoes enjoyed a cocktail with tea!!! Love it!
You first want to prepare some of Mamacat’s Q. Tea Ruby Slippers tea. You will notice how fresh the tea smells! The tea itself is a beautiful color! The picture doesn’t do it justice! The beautiful color is from hibiscus flowers. And did I mention this tea is packed with Vitamin C??? Love it! After you prepare the tea, let the tea cool, before making the rest of the drink.
To compliment the citrus and flower flavors of the tea, I added some PAMA (pomegranate liqueur), some Triple Sec (orange liqueur), ginger ale (regular or diet, for a little bubbly), and a few orange slices for garnish. You may want to multiple this recipe and make a pitcher for easy serving! I hope you enjoy!
