My fondest memories of home when I was younger were all the dinner parties my parents hosted. Nothing too fancy, but pretty casual. A Friday night thing, you know. Though there was always a theme. Sometimes Asian, other times Italian, occasionally French or Indian. Each and every time there was a menu confirmed my father sat in the dining room testing out cocktail recipes. And the second he thinks he came across a decent idea, he would bring over a small glass to my mother for a trial.
So it was with great pleasure that I too sat in my dining room trying to figure out the perfect cocktail for the English tea party inspired birthday event. A little sweet from the honey, refreshing from the lemon and a subtle blend of rosemary and English breakfast black tea.
