Black Tea and Grape Smash


Black tea and elderflower - how much more refreshing can you get? This new creation from Charlie McCarthy of  AllAboutTheCocktail.com is a cocktail with an edge - enjoy! 

Ingredients:
35ml vodka
15ml elderflower cordial
5ml fresh lemon juice
4 white seedless grapes
Black tea reduction

To make the tea reduction simply brew a very strong cuppa, and allow to cool. AllAboutTheCocktail.com recommends loose leaf Assam from 'We Are Tea', but at a push an ordinary breakfast tea will do. 

Method:

Crush 3 grapes and add to a tall glass, then add all other ingredients except the tea reduction. 

Top with ice. Churn with a long spoon. 

Top with more ice to a peak. 

Drizzle a little tea reduction - no more than 15ml- overthe top. Garnish with a grape & add a straw.
