Ingredients

  • 2 bags Oolong tea
  • 1 Tablespoon condensed milk
  • 2 Tablespoons heavy cream
  • 2 slices of ginger
  • 1 Teaspoon ginger powder
  • 3 Tablespoons brown sugar
  • 2 Ounces ginger vodka
  • Ice

Directions

Brew the Oolong tea with hot water. Remove the bag or drain the loose-leaf Oolong and place the liquid tea back into a small pot. Add condensed milk, ginger powder, fresh ginger, and sugar to the brewed Polong tea and let it boil. For sweeter tea, add more sugar. Once the flavor is just right, set aside and let it cool.

Once the tea is cool, place into the refrigerator. Pour 4 ounces of sweetened tea mixture to a mixer and add heavy cream. Add vodka and fill with ice to the rim. Cover and shake. 

Strain into a martini glass and garnish with a slice of ginger.

Spice Shopping Tip

Spices and dried herbs have a shelf life too, and lose potency over time. The rule of thumb is, if your spices are over two years old, it's time to buy some new ones.

Spice Cooking Tip

Toasting whole spices before using them intensifies their aroma and flavor.
