We tried a crazy cocktail this year.
However, one of them really intrigued us. It’s called cursed water, and the reason why it was so interesting is because it contained hot tea!
“TEA?!” you say! Yep, we were as shocked as she is.
Now we were pretty sure that it wasn’t going to taste good. But once we had heard of this strange concoction, we couldn’t really let Halloween pass without trying it. On top of everything else, I had a duty to drink it, and share my experience with all of you on Halloween-errific!
- 1 oz. 151-proof rum
- 1/2 oz. gin
- 1/4 oz. peach schnapps
- 1 tbsp. honey
- Hot tea
- Lemon slice
Putting this crazy cocktail together is pretty straight forward.
Fill a mug 3 quarters of the way with tea, then had the other ingredients slowly, finishing with the lemon slice.
We didn’t have 151 rum. And to be honest, I’m not sure what we used. I’m thinking that it was Mount Gay, but it could quite easily have been Wray and Nephew considering the devil-may-care mood that we were in.
Whatever we used, I can confidently say that it tasted pretty rough. It was an interesting experience, but certainly wasn’t one of those cocktails that left you saying “Oh wow, was there even any alcohol in that?”.
In essence, it tasted like tea with booze in. Which is just what it was.
On the plus side though, tea contains caffeine, and by drinking it, we were able to stay up even later – which is just what you want to be able to do on Halloween.
