Tea Forté Cocktail Infusions

From the innovators at Tea Forté comes a new line of delightful little tea teepees designed to diffuse three types of freshly steeped tea into cocktails and spirits. Tender flavors of white tea, lavender citrus, lemon balm and bergamot come together in the lavender variety; lemongrass, spearmint and myrtle compose the lemongrass mint; and a rich blend of organic black teas and exotic spices combine in the silkroad chai. To use, there’s no need to heat: Simply add an infusion sachet to your spirit of choice (vodka and rum are popular picks), add a splash of juice or soda (or don’t!), and tea is served. $12, teaforte.com

Peruvian Pisco

By Xania V. Woodman

Essentially a distilled Peruvian grape spirit or aguardiente, pisco (PEE-sco) was developed in Peru by Spanish settlers in the 1600s. Whether puro (one grape variety) or acholado (a blend), unoaked Peruvian pisco is delicate, floral, earthy, aromatic and grapey—a stark contrast to its robust, oak-aged Chilean cousin of the same name. Peruvian brands to look for include Macchu Pisco, Gran Sierpe, La Diablada (when you can find it) and BarSol.
