Bonus: Teaspressa Cocktail Kits
We haven’t mentioned the Paloma yet — easily one of the best cocktails of all time. But if you’re in a hurry to make this kitchen-counter cocktail, throw some tequila in a glass and add one of Teaspressa's LUXE Grapefruit sugar cubes like you would Alka-Seltzer. The local tea company is also offering Green Gold Tequila cocktail kits — a package of Teaspressa's Signature Green Gold Tea, lime juice, agave syrup, and Pellegrino Blood Orange sparkling water. It’s all premixed and pre-measured. The last step is adding tequila. Kits are $9 and make two 8-ounce cocktails.
