Tea Recipe: Sweet Tea Vodka

In the recent World Expo, we made several different cocktails that delighted everyone. We used tea as a mixer, spirit and an enhancer to a cocktail.

All the cocktails we made received rave reviews; however, one in particular, seemed to be the crowd favourite: Sweet Tea Vodka.

One of the primary reasons that Tea Cocktails have seen a resurgence in popularity. And it's so easy to make your own!

Here’s the recipe:

Tea Recipe to Make Homemade Sweet Tea Vodka

  • 1-quart vodka 
  • 1 1/2 cups simple syrup
  • 1/4 cup NYC Breakfast black tea, loose leaf


1. Combine all ingredients in a sealed container and shake well to thoroughly mix. 

2. Allow to steep for 45 minutes, shaking occasionally. Strain.

3. Best served chilled.

This is good by itself but also mixes well. For example, a 1:1 ratio of tea-vodka to fresh-squeezed lemonade makes a mean Spiked Arnold (named after the golfer Arnold Palmer who created the non-alcoholic version).
