The Pirate’s Tea Party

January 13, 2012

Since the last Nobler Gathering, I’ve had quite a few Irish Coffees. But after tasting how good my homemade spiced rum came out, the Pirate’s Tea Party seemed like an even better option.

This one’s a simple drink. For simple occasions. The black tea plays off of the bay leaf, cardamom, and cinnamon and the slight sweetness from the apples and vanilla. A few dashes of lemon bitters and you are good to go. If I read the Sunday paper, this is the drink I’d pair it with.

The Pirate’s Tea Party:

1 mug of fresh brewed black tea

1 heavy splash of spiced rum (homemade here)

2-3 dashes of lemon bitters

1 lemon wedge
