Hotaka Tea

 

This holiday season, Borgata’s fine dining restaurants are creating signature seasonal cocktails, perfect to celebrate this festive time of year. At Izakaya by Michael Schulson, mixologists have created a warm winter libation that’s a perfect way to chase away the cold-weather blues: Hotaka Tea. This Japanese take on a Hot Toddy features infused plum wine and warming cinnamon.

 

Ingredients

 1 oz Shochu
 ½ oz Honey-Infused Umeshu Plum Wine
 2 Cloves
 1 Cinnamon Stick
 1 Lemon Wheel
 4 oz Hot Water

 

Directions

1

Begin by studding 2-4 cloves through a fresh lemon peel (Make sure the cloves are snug so they don’t float freely in the drink)

2

Add the clove-studded peel and a cinnamon stick to a glass or mug

3

Pour the shochu and honey-infused plum wine over the garnishes

4

Add a dash of orange bitters and finish with hot water

5

Stir gently to marry the light libation

6

Enjoy slowly as the aromatics steep and develop
