After a particularly long day I mused on Facebook whether I should have a cup of tea or a martini. I couldn’t decide so I had both. Now, my husband insists that this is better with silver rum, I think it’s best with vodka. Regardless of which you use, I hope you enjoy this libation. Be sure to let me know what tea/liquor you chose to make it with, as I know each blend brings a unique experience.
