Steps to Make It:

  3. Add the cognac and fresh organic iced green tea,  muddle a little more.
  4. Strain into an old-fashioned glass filled with fresh ice.
  5. Garnish with a mint leaf. Serve and enjoy.

Variations

  • A splash of lemon juice can give this drink a bright accent.
  • If you like, the ginger tea also works well when served warm, creating a drink similar to the hot toddy. Simply switch from chilled green tea to hot tea. 
  • Make this into a big-batch tea drink for a party. Increase the ingredients, Keeping the cognac to tea ratio at 1:2 (1:3 is a good mix, though).
  •  A few extra mint leaves can be added to the pitcher and will infuse the drink over time.
