Winner of the Tales of the Cocktail® Official Cocktail Competition and created by @slobitterco, the Night Gardens pairs whiskey, jasmine tea syrup, club soda, and lemon for a beautifully fragrant drink with a slightly tarte finish.
- 2 oz Whisky
- ½ oz Jasmine Tea Syrup
- 4 oz Q Mixers Club Soda
- Lemon Peel
Pour 2 oz of Whisky over ice in a highball glass. Add ½ oz jasmine tea syrup, top with Q Mixers Club Soda and gently stir. Express the lemon rind over the top of the drink and garnish with fresh jasmine.
To make the tea syrup, mix 1 cup of water with 1 cup of sugar in a saucepan. Add 2 bags of jasmine tea and bring the mixture to the boil slowly. Once the sugar has dissolved, decant into an empty bottle and store in the fridge. The syrup will be good for up to one month.
