How To Make The Best Ever #LapsangSouchong Cocktail
To start, you will need 1.5 fl oz (40 ml) of cold lapsang souchong tea, 1.5 fl oz (40 ml) of Hendricks Gin, and premium tonic water. Personally, we use light tonic water because we don't feel we need the extra calories from sugar.
Next, add ice to a cocktail glass, mix the lapsang souchong tea, the gin and top up with
your tonic water. Give it a gentle stir and add a twist or orange or lemon.

Mint Julep Tea
I had a mint julep at Heritage Distilling here in the Harbor. Not sure how accurate it was or how it compared to most mint juleps, but here is the tea recipe I based off of it:
- 4 perfect teaspoons French Caramel Creme Brulee tea leaves
- 2 perfect teaspoons rock sugar
- 2 perfect teaspoons Stomach Upset herbal
- 1 matcha spoon of Lapsang Souchong tea
That should make about an ounce of loose tea. I used that amount to make a jug of iced tea and thought it could be a little bit stronger, but it turned out pretty good. Sweeter than I would like, but the mint julep I had was really sweet.
