Cherry Blossom Tea Cocktails

The base of this cocktail starts with tea-infused sake or vodka. Using some tender leaves of Organic Sencha, the infusion only takes an hour to develop a light and refreshing layer of tea taste.

You can make these with either sake or vodka. Using sake will give a sweeter, smoother taste to the cocktail, while using vodka will yield sharper, brighter and more noticeably alcoholic notes.

The smallest splash of concentrated tart cherry juice gives these cocktails a soft mauve tinge.

For an extra special touch, decorate these Cherry Blossom Tea Cocktails with pickled sakura blossoms and leaves. These pretty pink drinks are elegant way to wind down after a long spring day–a once in a year treat that’s definitely worth the wait!
