Ginger Iced Green Tea Delight Baijiu Cocktail

Another cocktail innovation from the Lost Plate baijiu cocktail kit*. A summery, baijiu-forward sweet tea. This has a nice balance of ginger and green tea. Adding the green tea simple syrup makes it ideal for long evenings on the front porch.

Our tasting panel said:

“This is caramel-y! It’s very gingery but not sharp or biting.”

“This tastes like summer. Interesting and refreshing. I totally want to take this out to the front porch in July at 8pm”

“The fruity profile has a final aftertaste of… jellybeans?”

“It has the same mix of sweet and bitter as a pomegranate!”
