Sunrise Long Island Iced Tea: A Spiced Twist on a Tea-infused Classic

Traditional cocktails, though wonderful in their original form, offer an exciting canvas for culinary creativity and innovation. A testament to this is our spiced version of the Sunrise Long Island Iced Tea. This reimagined classic cocktail integrates the nuanced flavours of Sip Steeple's Sunrise Breakfast tea blend, a hint of rose water, and the bold character of spiced rum for a sensory experience that is sure to captivate.

The Sunrise Breakfast tea is a unique combination of English Breakfast tea, with the soft touch of white tea and the romantic notes of rose petals. When paired with the spicy complexity of spiced rum and the delicate floral undertone of rose water, the result is a cocktail that is intriguing, sophisticated, and utterly enjoyable.

Let's embark on this thrilling journey of creating a reimagined classic.

  3. Assemble the Cocktail: Place the Sunrise Breakfast tea ice cubes into a highball glass. Pour the shaken cocktail mix over the tea ice cubes.

  4. Add the Finishing Touches: Top up the glass with a splash of cola, adding colour and a hint of sweetness to balance the strong flavours. Garnish with a wheel of lemon and a few rose petals for a touch of visual appeal and a nod to the floral notes of the Sunrise Breakfast tea.
