Cocktail of the week

It’s National Tea Day in the UK next week (21 April), so to celebrate, we thought we’d take the opportunity to combine two great British loves: a good brew and a tasty cocktail!

While we’re all familiar with iced tea or sweet tea as a cold drink, the infused beverage is not commonly used as a cocktail ingredient despite having the ability, in its many wonderful iterations, to match well with a variety of spirits and styles of drink.

Slingsby, from the Spirit of Harrogate distillery, has put together a selection of tea-based cocktails to mark National Tea Day. These recipes should get your mouth watering and your creative cocktail-making ideas flowing!

For this week’s cocktail we’ve chosen the Yorkshire Iced Tea with Slingsby’s London Dry Gin – combining two great exports from the county.

Yorkshire Iced Tea


  • 50ml Slingsby London Dry Gin
  • 50ml Yorkshire Tea
  • 25ml elderflower cordial


Add hot water to a Yorkshire Tea bag and allow to cool. Fill a tall glass with ice, add all ingredients including the tea and stir thoroughly. Garnish with a lemon wedge.
