In need of a green drink this St Patrick’s Day?
St Patrick’s Day brings out the Irish in all of us and to celebrate we have a St Patrick’s Day inspired drink from Revolution Tea. Each year on March 17th, people from around the world celebrate St Patrick’s day by wearing green, sporting a shamrock, attending parades, eating traditional Irish food, and enjoying their favorite Irish drink. If you are looking for something a little different than a bright green beer this holiday, this recipe is for you.
This recipe is a simple, yet exciting spiked iced tea treat made with our very own Traditional Organic Green Tea. This Irish Cocktail calls for 4 simple ingredients (absinthe, Irish whiskey, green tea, and a lime slice). The surprise taste you will find in this drink is absinthe and it is a very distinctly flavored spirit. When mixed with our delicious Organic Green Tea it cuts the bitterness of the whiskey and absinthe making for a smooth refreshing drink for your St Patrick’s Day celebrations.
This recipe is quick to make and only has a prep time of 3 minutes! You will need to cool your green tea beforehand so account for that when preparing this tasty drink.
