Recipe: Sparkling Pink Grapefruit Pom Green Tea

Posted by alexis siemons on

Bright & festive, green tea is brewed in our Flash Chill Iced Tea Maker and mixed with honey, fresh grapefruit, pomegranate juice and topped with sparkling water. A sprinkle of pomegranate seeds this give this gradient pink sip an extra pop of color.

Fresh, crisp flavors of Sencha, a Japanese green tea, are balanced by rich, sweet flavors of honey. Tea Tip: Sencha green tea calls for a water temp that is well below boiling – we recommend 160 degrees to gently brew the tea rather than burn it (which will lead to bitter flavors). If an electric kettle is not part of your kitchen crew, reach for a candy thermometer to check the temp of the water in your stovetop kettle.

Seek out ruby red grapefruit as they are known for a sweeter flavor and add a pink hue to this sip. Make the green tea, honey and grapefruit base in advance, and then when you’re ready to serve fill each glass with 5oz of the green tea grapefruit mix, 2oz of pomegranate juice (opt for 100% juice), and top off with your favorite unsweetened sparkling water. When picking up the bubbly, look for a grapefruit or citrus infused bottle to amp up the ruby red grapefruit flavors. Garnish with pomegranate seeds and a grapefruit slice, and serve this sip for a holiday that’s merry and iced.
