Rooibos Tea Cocktail

  • SERVINGS: makes 1 drink

P*ong • New York City

Mixologist Yvan Lemoine, who worked as a pastry chef for years before he stepped behind the bar, creates inspired cocktails like this one—an earthy-fruity combination of South African rooibos tea, the distilled Japanese spirit shochu and blackberries.
