Peach Green Tea Negroni

 

Before getting sick last week I was out shopping for some dresses on the cheap & came across something interesting. In the check out line were a bunch of Tazo boxed teas & I was struck with inspiration! Since I hadn’t made it out to the liquor store yet, I decided to scrap my original negroni idea & go with a summery white negroni. If you followed along with or participated in Negroni Week last week, you’ll know that while the classic version of the cocktail is wonderful  it’s also endlessly variable.

So here’s my take on a white negroni. I used Dolin Blanc instead of sweet vermouth & Avèze as the bitter amaro in place of Campari. The peach green tea lends the sweetness lost in the vermouth switch & a squeeze of lemon brings it all together. The result is light, summer-fruit forward, & smooth.
