Costa Brava Swizzle


From the Costa Brava to the Côte d’Azur, vermouth is synonymous with the aperitif. Switch up your usual beer or martini with this aromatic Spanish-inspired swizzle. Our black tea Leatherbound with dark cocoa and caraway complements the richness of French vermouth and Benedictine liqueur. It’s a light drink that’s big on flavor and low on calories. 

Recipe is for 1 drink.
Tea concentrate recipe makes enough for 2 drinks.
Allow 1 hour for tea concentrate.

Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoons Leatherbound tea
  • 2 ounces Noilly Prat red vermouth
