Not Your Grandma’s Sweet Tea.

This tea-based liqueur gets an extra hint of sweetness with help from the highly enjoyable but equally stubborn pomegranate. Don’t fret. Pomegranate-flavored tea bags are widely available and so much easier to wield.


First, make sure you have all the needed ingredients: 8 bags pomegranate green tea, 6 oz. Everclear®, 7 oz. filtered water and 13 oz. white simple syrup. If you don’t have simple syrup on hand and want to make your own, check out our simple syrup instructions.

Combine Everclear®, water and tea bags in a quart-sized, sealable container and let steep for 2 hours, or to taste.

Once steeped, remove tea bags and add simple syrup. Mix thoroughly, bottle and enjoy.
