Moonlight Flight Tea Cocktail recipe

A refreshing iced tea for balmy summer evenings.

This refined drink is inspired by the classic Aviation cocktail. Here we’ve infused gin with our gently aromatic Moonlight Jasmine green tea for a light and refreshing brew that will dress up any festive summer evening.


Cocktail shaker


Infuse one Moonlight Jasmine tea bag in the gin for approx. 2 hours, stirring occasionally. Then strain the liquor through a fine sieve.

Next, assemble your cocktail by placing the tea and gin liquor into a cocktail shaker along with the vermouth, lemon juice and cherry liqueur. Add a few ice cubes and shake vigorously. Strain into a chilled cocktail glass and serve.
