Green Tea Cherry Margarita

You can usually find me with a glass of wine or bubbly, but when the weather starts to get warm I love a good margarita. I received some amazing Fleur de Geisha tea from Le Palais des Thés. The tea is inspired by the Japanese Hanami tradition of cherry blossom viewing and is a refined Japanese green tea delicately flavored with cherry blossom.

I just love it!  It adds great flavor to so many drinks. A definite staple for your bar.

Chocolate Stout Float

Just wanted to share a a quick recipe for a drink I made with the bourbon vanilla ice cream. Just add two scoops of ice cream to your glass. Add a shot of bourbon and top with your choice of double chocolate stout, I used Young’s. Finish with whipped cream and caramel. If you think my whipped cream looks a little funny, It does. I took my eye of the mixer for a second and it was over whipped! Even with the over whipped whipped cream, it was still tasty. This is a serious grown up float! More posts coming soon!
