Jaeger Tea

A simple cocktail with Schnapps, rum and a bit of orange juice. Though most of the flavour comes from the Schnapps and rum, you can really taste the addition of the black tea.

3 oz rum
6 oz water
Juice from one orange
1 tea bag (black)

Preparation:

Heat ingredients together in a saucepan until boiling. Let simmer for 5 minutes, and serve. Sugar to taste.

Ingredients:

2 oz white rum
1 tbsp honey
5 sprigs of mint
2 tbsp sugar syrup
6 oz hot green tea

Preparation:

75 ml sugar
500 ml red wine
5 ml ground cloves
1 cinnamon stick
Rind of 1 lemon

Preparation:

Boil the tea, lemon rind, sugar, cinnamon and cloves together until the sugar dissolves. Add the red wine and bring to a boil. Strain out cinnamon stick and the rind. You may need to add more sugar, to taste. Serve with a slice of lemon.

Enjoy!
