Royal Salute

October 20, 2014


Author Notes: This tea based cocktail is a warm dram perfect for Fall and bursting with the flavors of the season. It uses fresh pomegranates that are abounding the market now and makes for soothing drink any time of the evening!
I used Royal Earl Grey tea to make it which has a mild hint of lavender to it and pairs well with the richness of the pomegranate. You can make this with regular Earl grey as well and if you choose steep a pinch of lavender in the tea.
