Mixology - The Leland Palmer | Post Fishing Beverage

THW made this drink last weekend. I wish Bon Appetit had published the recipe earlier in the season. A balance of sweet and savory from infused tea and tartness from citrus. I prefer to drink one from a Tervis Tumbler but a jelly glass is just as good.

I bring you the Leland Palmer:


Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup honey
  • 1/2 cup hot water
  • 3 cups freshly brewed jasmine tea, cooled
  • 3/4 cup gin
  • 3/4 cup limoncello*
  • 3/4 cup fresh lemon juice
  • 1/2 cup fresh grapefruit juice
  • 1 cup chilled club soda
  • Ice cubes
  • 6 lemon slices (for garnish)
  • *Limoncello, a lemon-flavored liqueur, can be found at many supermarkets, at Trader Joe's markets, and at liquor stores.

Preparation

  • Stir honey and 1/2 cup hot water in small bowl until honey dissolves. Cool completely.
  • Combine honey water, jasmine tea, gin, limoncello, lemon juice, and grapefruit juice in large pitcher. Add club soda and stir to blend.
  • Fill six 1-pint mason jars or 6 tall glasses with ice cubes. Divide tea mixture among jars; top each with lemon slice.
