Ready for a new one-minute tea-food/drink video?
Today we present...Oolong Old Fashioned! It's like a regular Old Fashioned, but made with an oolong simple syrup instead of regular simple syrup or sugar. Brew the tea to twice it's regular strength (that means using the double the amount of tea leaves, not double the brewing time...otherwise you'll just get bitter oolong).
- brew 12g oolong in 1 cup of water.
- mix equal parts brewed tea and sugar to make oolong simple syrup.
- in the glass combine: 1/2oz simple syrup, bitters, and 2oz whiskey.
- don't forget the ice. stir and drink up.
*Measurement typos in the video, will get that fixed soon! Use the written directions this post in the meantime.
P.S. Super thank you to Allen for all the video magic ^_^
