Instructions

The Velvet Embrace is a mocktail that captures the essence of February, combining the depth of tea, the allure of cherries, and the seductive warmth of spices. This exotic and sophisticated drink has a complex flavor profile with a sexy edge, without being overly sweet or fruity. Ingredients: - 1 black tea bag - 6 oz boiling water - 2 oz cherry juice, tart preferably - 1/2 oz fresh lemon juice - 1/4 tsp ground cinnamon - 1/8 tsp ground nutmeg - A pinch of ground clove - A pinch of black pepper - Honey or agave syrup, to taste (optional) - 3 fresh or frozen dark cherries, pitted - Cinnamon stick for garnish - Star anise for garnish - Twist of lemon peel for garnish - Ice Instructions: 1. Begin by steeping the black tea bag in boiling water for 5 minutes to create a strong tea base. Allow it to cool to room temperature. 2. In a shaker, muddle the cherries to release their juices and combine with cherry juice. 3. Add the cooled tea, fresh lemon juice, ground cinnamon, nutmeg, clove, and black pepper to the shaker. 4. If a touch of sweetness is desired, add a small amount of honey or agave syrup. Remember, the aim is to balance the flavors without it becoming too sweet. 5. Fill the shaker with ice and shake vigorously until well chilled. 6. Strain the mixture into a large snifter glass filled with ice, making sure to catch any spice particles. 7. Garnish with a cinnamon stick, a star anise, and a twist of lemon peel to enhance the drink's exotic aroma. 8. Serve immediately, inviting the imbiber to embrace the warmth and mystery of February with every sip.
