Inspired by Wimbledon: our Strawberry, Cherry & Rose Tisane mocktail
What’s that thwack we hear? It’s the gratifying sound of tennis ball on racket – Wimbledon is here! To mark the occasion, we set Bettys Cookery School genius Lisa Bennison the task of devising a Wimbledon-inspired mocktail based on our new Strawberry, Cherry & Rose Tisane. After all, Wimbledon and strawberries go together like Bettys and afternoon tea.
Here’s how you can make your own.
(Makes 10 potions of cordial)
5 Strawberry, Rose & Cherry Tisane tea bags
500ml boiling water
50g icing sugar
5 crushed black peppercorns
Dash of raspberry vinegar (optional)
Dash of vanilla extract
Spring of mint
5 strawberries (cut into quarters)
Quarter of a cucumber (finely diced)
Serve with either mineral water, lemonade or Prosecco
Place the tea bags in a jug along with the icing sugar, crushed black pepper, vanilla, vinegar and the stalks from the mint.
Pour over 500ml of boiling water. Leave to cool for a minimum of 2 hours.
Strain the cordial through a fine sieve.
To serve, pour 50ml of the cordial into an ice-filled glass. Top with 50ml of sparkling mineral water or your favourite fizz.
Add diced cucumber, strawberry and a chopped mint.
Sit back, relax and hope for no rain delays.
