Mango + Plum Sweet Tea Cocktail

Mango + Plum Sweet Tea CocktailI've been dreaming about this cocktail for quite a while, but I was just waiting for Spring to finally arrive. This drink is perfect to sip on the porch at night, or serve at a backyard barbecue. If you like sweet tea, give this recipe a try!Mango + Plum Sweet Tea Cocktail IngredientsMango + Plum Sweet Tea Cocktail, Serves One 

3 ounces tea (I used Rooibos De Provence from David's Tea)
2 ounces fresh orange juice
1 ounce bourbon (I used Bulleit)
2 ounces Jeremiah Weed Sweet Tea Vodka
plum and mango, cut into cubes

Mix tea, orange juice, bourbon and sweet tea vodka in a short glass. Add cubes of fruit and serve with ice. Optional: garnish with fresh mint leaves.Mango + Plum Sweet Tea Cocktail  I can tell this cocktail will be one of my new spring/summer favorites. It's sweet (but not too sweet), fruity and refreshing. I think it would be fun to try a mixed berry version next!Mango + Plum Sweet Tea Cocktail- so good! Mango + Plum Sweet Tea Cocktail- so good! I made a larger batch to store in my fridge overnight. It's a great way to allow the flavors to infuse more. I love having ready-made cocktails for parties too. It saves so much time to have a few options that guests can serve themselves!

  • Lovely use of plums! Would you be happy to link it in to the new Food on Friday which is all about plums? This is the link . I do hope to see you there. Cheers

  • oh sweet Elsie! as a pregnant lady i can only dream of such a lovely drink…i was wondering if you could whip up a fancy “virgin” drink for us non (or unable to) drinkers? 🙂

  • Perfect! My boyfriend and I are making once a day a new fresh juice, and yes…yesterday we mixed black tea with blended fruit, it was soo tasty…we should try this recipe soon!
    Thank you for lovely post! =)
