  • SERVINGS: Makes 1 Drink

"Tea," says Jennifer Colliau, "is a wonderful base for nonalcoholic drinks because its slight bitterness makes a complex, adult beverage rather than a fruity kids' drink." Here she mixes lemongrass tea with an easy-to-make clove-infused simple syrup.

  1. Ice
  2. 2 ounces chilled brewed lemongrass tea
  3. 1 ounce Clove Syrup
  4. 1 ounce fresh lime juice
  5. 1 lime wheel studded with cloves, for garnish
  1. Fill a cocktail shaker with ice. Add the tea, Clove Syrup and lime juice and shake well. Strain into an ice-filled collins glass and garnish with the clove-studded lime wheel.
