Drink an elf today

We've seen all the Elf on the Shelf pictures on the interwebs and we're toasting the creativity with this drink. Try this warming mix of ginger, green tea and mint to help shake those shivers off after a cold stroll around the block.

The Ginger Elf

4 oz. freshly-brewed green tea, hot
1 oz. Giffard Menthe-Pastille
1 oz. good quality vodka
1/2 oz. ginger simple syrup
1/4 oz. Meyer lemon juice
1 strip meyer lemon peel, for garnish

Combine all ingredients except lemon peel in a sherry glass or brandy snifter.

Twist lemon peel to release oils and garnish on side of glass.
