Wildcrafted Tea Cocktails

Get the party started with a round of unique and refreshing cocktails using either of Juniper Ridge’s wildcrafted teas. Both of these recipes are perfect for after the hike while relaxing in the late day sun. Try the Sage and Mint Bourbon cocktail for an earthy and delicious beverage. And the Spring Tip Lemon Whiskey for a delightful forest-y treat. For the best flavor, use Tin Cup American Whiskey, distilled in the Rocky Mountains of Colorado.
