Ingredients

2 Tbl Lapsang Souchong Tea
2 cups water

We love watching mixologists infuse glasses with fancy tools to infuse a little smoke into cocktails. Here’s a similar method that requires no extra equipment! Steep up Lapsang Souchong, a smoky Chinese black tea, and freeze into ice cubes. Pop a few into an Old Fashioned or create your own Rum & Smoke. No fancy tools, but one very cool trick!

Instructions

1.Boil 2 cups water. Remove from heat and add the Lapsang Souchong tea. Steep for 10 mins. This is a much longer than usual steep time; however, since the liquid will be used to make ice cubes, a concentrated tea is necessary. Remember that the ice will melt slowly in the spirit and intense flavor is needed in order to infuse the drink..
2.Strain off the leaves and pour the tea into ice cube trays. Freeze for at least 3 hours. If not using immediately, pop out of the ice cube trays and store in a zip top bag.
