Passion Tea Rosé Spritzer
Passion tea is probably one of my favorite drinks on this planet. Thanks to Starbucks and their Passion tea lemonade drinks, I've been obsessed with it.
Before the quarantine/stay at home order happened, we were in the process at work of creating our spring cocktail list. I was really looking forward to the bar meeting where we got to try all of everyone's idea and vote on which ones we liked best. It's one of my favorite times because we all get to hang out and just drink fancy cocktails together.
Last year, I got my lavender lemonade cocktail onto the menu so I was determined to put my best foot forward and try to get one on this year's list too. I scoured Pinterest and Google for inspiration and looked at popular spring flavor combinations for this year.
I didn't find many recipes I was super into, but I did find this hibiscus rose sparkling martini that sounded really tasty. I wanted to put my own spin on it and make it my own.
Summer cocktails are my favorite kind of cocktails. They're bright, light, and refreshing and perfect for hot days where all I want to do is lay on a beach chair and have a drink in the sun. I also love summer cocktails because they're typically easier to make it bulk and share with friends. I actually made this particular drink for a couple friends of mine for a girls day and it was a huge hit!
I hope you and whoever you decide to share this drink with enjoy it as much as I do!
