- 2 oz Irish Whiskey (I used Jameson)
- 1/2 oz Amaro Montenegro
- 1/4 oz Jasmine Tea Syrup
- Dash of Orange Bitters
- Dash of Angostura Bitters
1. Combine all ingredients into a mixing glass, add ice and stir to chill. Strain into a rocks glass filled with ice. Garnish with a lemon twist. (The cocktail served in the ice ball sphere was just extra, but it’s not necessary).
How to Make Jasmine Tea Syrup
Combine 1 cup of water into a small saucepan on the stove and bring to a light boil. Once heated, steep 1 teaspoon of jasmine loose leaf tea for 4-5 minutes. After it’s done steeping, strain out the tea leaves and combine 1 cup of sugar into the jasmine tea. (Same process if you’re using a jasmine tea bag versus loose leaf tea). Store the syrup into a glass jar and store in the refrigerator for up to 2 weeks.
Quick Note: If you want to batch this cocktail, multiply the recipe above by the number of people you’re looking to serve.
