Salish Tea by Me (and a good friend!) October 30 2012

I have not given up on my Pinterest challenge but I must pause to share our latest concoction. We've a made a hard tea with our Rum & Cola microblend and are ready to share it with the world. It was so easy to enjoy I almost forgot to take a photo! Our Salish Tea was created with dear friends in the North Beach neighborhood of Port Townsend with views of the Salish Sea. Please enjoy in hot or cold weather!

Salish Tea (makes 8-10 servings)
6 Rum & Cola tea bags
2 cups Captain Morgan Spiced Rum
1 - 2 limes
1/2 cup simple syrup
Jamaican Ginger Sugar for rimming

Brew 6 tea bags in 2 cups of boiling water for 5 minutes to make a concentrate. Juice limes while your tea is brewing. Pour concentrate in a pitcher and 4 cups of cold water. Add rum, lime juice and simple syrup. Stir. Rim your glasses, add ice cubes and pour beverage. Garnish with a lime slice and enjoy!
