The NO/LO (no alcohol, low alcohol) drink trend is picking up steam on menus across the country, and your restaurant tea selection should be a source of delicious new options.
Making a concentrate in the kitchen is an excellent way to portion tea based drinks consistently and easily.
Here’s a recipe for a house made vanilla ginger ale, using our Ginger Root tea.
Steep 1/4 cup Ginger Root with 1/2 vanilla bean (split lengthwise) in 2 cups of simmering water.
Add 1/2 to 1 cup sugar and stir until sugar is dissolved.
Turn off heat and let cool.
Strain this concentrate and chill.
To serve: Add 1-2oz to a tall glass and top with soda and a lime wedge. Delicious!
