Tea Thyme

  • TOTAL TIME: 5 MIN Plus 2 hr steeping
  • SERVINGS: Makes 1 drink

Mixologist Kathy Casey of Kathy Casey Food Studios–Liquid Kitchen steeps vodka in English Breakfast tea for this drink. To sweeten it, she uses local honey ("a great way to customize your cocktails," she says)—specifically, the dark, fig-flavored honey from her studio's backyard hive underneath a fig tree.
