Continuing our new Recipe of the Month segment here at Hackberry, we'd like to introduce you to our March recipe, Liquid Luck. This refreshing iced drink features our Love Potion #9 Yerba Mate and plays off of the idea of a lucky potion. Slightly floral and fruity with a hint of honey, this month's recipe is sure to charm your taste buds!
Liquid Luck Iced Tea
- 2 teaspoons Love Potion #9 Yerba Mate
- 1 teaspoon honey (we love honey from Coffee Blossom Honey!)
- A splash of lemonade
- Put two teaspoons of our Love Potion #9 Yerba Mate in a tea bag or infuser and steep at 206 degrees Fahrenheit for four minutes.
- Measure one teaspoon of honey into a cup. After the tea has finished steeping, remove the bag or infuser and pour the tea into the cup as well. Mix honey and tea.
- Pour tea and honey over ice. Don't worry about the ice watering down the tea, using two teaspoons instead of one while steeping counterbalances this.
- Add a splash of lemonade. We used about one tablespoon, but you can adjust this to your preference.
- Garnish with a dried rose petal for a fun visual twist!
The Love Potion #9 tea used in this recipe is a caffeinated blend of roasted Yerba Mate, cocoa nibs, rose, and lavender. It is a delightfully delicate tea that pairs perfectly with the bright sweetness of lemonade and honey. This recipe is best enjoyed iced, perfect for the growing temperatures of spring.
