When one thinks of the word ‘brew’, tea is normally the first drink to come to mind. While a tea-drinker is often thought of as a particular kind of person, not all palettes are the same. Some like Ceylon, others like Chamomile, and then there are those who prefer Earl Grey. If tea is not necessarily your thing, Sailor Jerry Spiced Rum suggests stirring up the Backyard Tea cocktail.
A closer look reveals that the era of sipping tea has, against all odds, spawned a heavy rebirth. From the embroidery teacups status, it wasn’t too long before tea infused cocktails in highball glasses were born – and it looks like they may be here to stay.
Longer brewed tea is a hell of a lot stronger than a shorter brew, so this timing ratio could turn the taste of the tea into something completely different, real quick. Out of the residue of the high tea bubble comes real tea inventiveness that is much like the work of Norman ‘Sailor Jerry’ Collins himself, iconic and artistic.
The Backyard Tea cocktail isn’t your old dorm room trashcan concoction. Instead, take pride, be inventive, and make sure it’s properly brewed and mixed. This drink is made up of Sailor Jerry’s spiced rum, iced tea and lemonade, definitely not just some thrown-together mess, but a well-melded cocktail that’s worth an extra bit of effort – especially if you are making homemade iced tea and lemonade.
