Chef Driven Tea Cocktails

Sponsor

The term “wellness-driven cocktails” may sound like an anomaly, but they are a growing movement that focuses on fresh, organic fruits, vegetables, herbs, spices, teas-infusions, and other botanicals in the preparation. They can be made with or without alcohol and appeal to the growing population of consumers who are embracing the “sober curious” life.

Enroot sparkling cold-brewed teas collaborated with 12 chefs to create cocktails with a focus on “ground to glass.” Here are two recipes.
