An ideal token for any tea or cocktail lover in your life, try our Crimson Jewel Royale tea cocktail recipe created by Wedgwood’s tea designer Bernadine Tay using the fruity Wonderlust Crimson Jewel tea blend.
This tea cocktail recipe is a British take on the iconic Kir Royale, an elegant champagne cocktail. Just like a Kir Royale, the Crimson Jewel Royale should not be very sweet. This simple sparkling cocktail is fruity, slightly tart, passionately red and with a hint of mint. Create a Crimson Jewel tea syrup, top it with champagne or dry sparkling wine and let the tea syrup sweeten the drink ever so slightly.
3 to 4 tablespoons of Crimson Jewel Tea Syrup per glass
1 (750ml) bottle dry sparkling wine or Champagne, chilled
¼ cup fresh sliced strawberries, optional
1. To make the delicious, concentrated fruity Crimson Jewel tea syrup, steep 2 tea bags in 1/2 cup of boiling water and add 10ml of agave syrup. Make this in advance and leave the tea bags in the syrup until its cooled. The result is a thick, juicy, syrupy mixture.
2. Chill the champagne until very cold and place the flute glasses into the freezer for a few minutes before making the cocktail so the drink touches the lips chilled.
3. Add 3 tablespoons of Crimson Jewel Tea Syrup to each flute. Drop in a few raspberries or strawberries. Fill each flute with champagne. Serve immediately in flutes.
