Ingredients
  • 1 cup vodka (alternatively, you could use gin)
  • Handful dried rosebuds (food grade)
  • 1/4 cup pink peppercorns
  • 1 1/2 cups granulated sugar
  • 3 cups water, divided
  • 2 Earl Grey (or other black tea) tea bags
Instructions
  1. Combine rosebuds and vodka in a mason jar for about 24 hours.

  2. Using a mortar and pestle crush pink peppercorns. If you don't have a mortar and pestle, place the peppercorns in a bag and use a blunt object to crush them.

  3. In a medium saucepan, combine sugar, 1 cup water, and crushed peppercorns over medium-high heat. Stir until the sugar is dissolved (about 5 minutes) and then remove from the heat to a bowl or a mason jar and let cool to room temperature.

  4. Make two cups of tea, each with 1 cup of water and 1 tea bag. Add 1 1/2 oz. of the rose vodka and 1/2 oz. of the pink peppercorn syrup to each cup of tea. If you want your tea sweeter, add more of the syrup.
