Cocktail Recipe: Ice Tea Grape Smash

It’s a well-known fact that the Brits love their tea, as well as loving a good stiff drink, so why not combine the two?

Ben Reed, global cocktail expert and the creator of this We Are Tea cocktail recipe, said, “Tea has been used to add bitterness and smokiness to cocktails and punches for centuries.

“Earthy and bittersweet green teas, malty black teas, smokey Lapsangs, and delicate white teas offer the mixologist a complexity of flavours to work with.

“We Are Tea’s 'g&tea' concept draws on the heritage and the history of using tea in cocktails while adding a refreshing take on the old classics.”

Here’s everything you’ll need to make the Ice Tea Grape Smash, enjoy!
