It’s Tea Time!

It’s Tea Time over at Served Raw, where they recently chose to feature four boozey punches highlighting different tea varietals, including one featured a couple of times on Cocktail Culture as a festive winter beverage, the Burroughs Festive Plum Punch. They also featured some mouth-watering recipes from The Bon Vivants, The Dizzy Fizz, and Cocktail Virgin Slut. But don’t just take my word for it. Give Served Raw’s article a read and see how the different varieties of tea pair up in punches. Here’s how they explained the tea time musing:

Booze makes everything more interesting, including tea time. These four recipes, created by experts and test-driven by us, prove that the best way to take your tea is with a heavy-handed pour of liquor, mounds of fresh fruit and heaping spoonfuls of simple syrup.

The Cinnamon Sidecar Strikes Again!

Are you familiar with the website Served Raw? If not, well, what are you still doing here? Go give them a read!

Wait, actually, don’t go yet! Let me tell you some more about them first.

San Fran-based Served Raw is all about sharing what’s new, crafty, and distinctive in the food and cocktail scenes, whether it be interviewing the “Genius” minds behind the stick or offering suggestions for inventive food and party tips. The Cinnamon-forward “Cidecar” recipe I wrote about last week, featuring Hiram Walker Original Cinn, is back in action again today; yet this time, I’m thrilled to say that Served Raw’s “Raw Bar” has the full scope of this new recipe’s ingenuity.

Ok, now go ahead and give their site a peek. 🙂
