Happy New Year: Healthy Cocktails
It is the start of a new year and instead of being on trend, we are striving to be trendsetters. In the quest for a healthy, good tasting cocktail, our mixologists have come up with innovative tea based beverages. These cocktails are served chilled and infused with various herbs and spices. Agave nectar is used in place of a higher calorie simple syrup, fresh squeezed lemon juice provides electrolytes with Vitamin C and a healthy serving of antioxidants is supplied by the tea itself. The small dose of caffeine also helps rev up our metabolism...who doesn't love that?! Earl Grey Chaos: 2.5 oz Black Pepper and Earl Grey Infused Gin, 1 oz Limoncello, Lemon Juice, Agave Nectar, Lemon Twist.
