Spiced Pear-tea-ini: 20 Days to Christmas 2021

Happy Sunday! After today, only 2 more Sundays until Christmas!

Today’s experiment was a bit involved. I made a cold brew of the Pear White tea from Revolution Tea. Meaning I placed 2 tea bags in a half gallon pitcher of cold water into the refrigerator for 7 hours. Then I warmed up 10 ounces of tea to infuse spices for 5 minutes.

The photo above shows cardamom, cinnamon, a clove, and star anise that I broke up with Pestar (my mortar and pestle).

Once those were infused, I added 1.75 ounces of gin (New Amsterdam). I will admit that it may have been a tad strong. One ounce of gin may be just fine.

The trick to this fine spiced pear-tea-ini is to stir it before each sip to ensure the gin is equally distributed before drinking.

  1. This sounds fun! I’ve never had gin, but I am fascinated with all the herbal gin infusions I’ve read about. I just don’t get around to drinking very often! I need to run to our amazing liquor store in shepherds town to pick up a couple things to make some of your drinks, I highly recommend visiting Shepherdstown Liquors if you are in the area they are a more sophisticated store and they have a vast selection and a great atmosphere.
