In China, the most common drink for the past 10 years or so has been Chivas and green tea. The green tea is often also blended with jasmine and sugar, which leads to a sweet floral flavor.
In honor of the Chinese New Year, José Andrés’ China Poblano, located inside The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas, has created a special cocktail using those base flavors to create a nice, refreshing whiskey sour.
Add the green tea bag to a cup of hot whiskey and let steep for 20 minutes. Discard the tea bag and return the infused whiskey to its own bottle.
Combine all of the ingredients together in a shaker and shake vigorously. Strain into a rocks glass over fresh ice.
