Brew Lab Tea X Scarpetta Botanical Cocktail Tasting

The Violetta

At the event, I was greeted with La Dolce Vita cocktail, a blend of the prosecco, vermouth and Spring Trellis Syrup. It was a great starter to get my night going. While sipping on this tasty treat, I met Brew Lab Tea’s Founder & Tea Sommelier, Jennie Ripps who educated me about her brand and their partnership with The James Hotel Nomad’s restaurants Scarpetta and The Seville. Each of the cocktails served from Scarpetta’s Head Mixologist, Brad Carnation, a variety of spirits, teas, and botanicals.

Ingredients for drinks

Each cocktail was more fascinating than the next. The No-groni is a unique blend of teas to make a virgin drink of this classic cocktail. The Violetta cocktail is an eye stopper of a cocktail due to its purple color from the pea flower tea syrup used. My ultimate favorite was the NY Whiskey Sour, a classic take on the New York Sour but with a malbec chai ice cube that transformed the taste of the drink after each sip.

At the end of the night, I was able to leave by making a blend of the teas used for these cocktails. This parting gift will ensure that I make some of these sippable cocktails from the comfort of my own home.

    First off I would like to say fantastic blog! I had a quick question in which I’d
    like to ask if you do not mind. I was curious to know how you center yourself and clear your mind prior
    to writing. I’ve had a difficult time clearing my thoughts in getting my ideas out there.
    I truly do take pleasure in writing but it just seems like the first
    10 to 15 minutes are usually lost just trying to figure out how to begin. Any recommendations or hints?
    Appreciate it!
