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
  • 1.5 ounce Benedictine DOM liqueur

  • Crushed ice
  • Orange peel or olive (optional)

    Preparation

    • Infuse 2 tablespoons Leatherbound tea with 10 ounces 212°F water for 5 minutes. Strain and cool to room temperature. Refrigeration causes cloudy tea.

    • If making 2 drinks, double the amount of all ingredients.
    • Swizzle with a swizzle stick or bar spoon.

    • Garnish with dried or burnt orange peel and an olive.
