Ginger Green Tea Cocktail

Embrace Summer's Sunset With a Graceful Green Tea Cocktail

Summer heat calls for refreshing aperitifs that fizz and sparkle, but as the days gracefully and gradually dim and mellow, a cocktail with a hair more heft is just the trick. Today's tipple, an elegant option whose complex flavor comes from a combination of ginger, green tea, and cognac is perfectly tailored to this transitional period. While light in body, it proudly proclaims "I am a cocktail" on first sip, but won't quite knock you off your feet as a negroni or old-fashioned might. Embrace Summer's sunset by trying the recipe for yourself.
