Aviation First Class Tea at

I live in the Canadian Rockies. It is officially cold here now. So, I decided to take my favourite Aviation Gin and make something warm and comforting. I invented a drink I call Aviation First Class Tea.

I brewed a pot of strong orange pekoe tea. Then I put the gin, peppermint schnapps and lemon juice in a cup. I filled it with hot tea and garnished with a lemon wheel.

The Verdict

This was perfect for a rainy cold day in the mountains. The tea was hat and soothing. The schnapps just gave a touch of minty goodness and sweetness. The lemon gave a fresh taste that complemented the mint flavour. This will change tea time forever.
