Spiked Berry Half-and-Half
We like using Lady Grey tea for this cocktail because it has a pleasantly lemony flavor. Feel free to substitute your favorite tea -- Earl Grey, mint, or chamomile would all be delicious.
- 1 Lady Grey tea bag
- 1 cup sliced strawberries (about 7)
- 1 cup vodka
- 1/4 cup superfine sugar
- 1 cup fresh lemon juice (from 6 lemons)
In a small container, combine tea bag, strawberries, and vodka. Let steep 1 hour. Meanwhile, in a small pitcher, stir together sugar and lemon juice until sugar dissolves. Discard tea bag, add vodka mixture to pitcher, and stir together.
To serve, fill four rocks glasses with ice. Divide cocktail among glasses and top with seltzer.
