Local tea guru and blogger, Alexis Siemons, returns to COOK for an afternoon of tea-based cocktails. Join us for a rejuvenating happy hour featuring fresh, bright and energizing cocktails, accompanied by light bites.  Alexis is a professional tea consultant certified by the Specialty Tea Institute, a division of the Tea Association of the USA. As a tea enthusiast, she writes about her steeped adventures on her website and blog, teaspoons & petals, as well as publications including Anthology Magazine, Grid Magazine, Philadelphia Magazine, Design*Sponge and more. This January at COOK, Alexis is teaming up with Tenaya Darlington (aka Madame Fromage) and her brother Andre, co-authors of The New Cocktail Hour, which includes vintage and modern cocktail recipes, pairing recommendations with everything from pizza to oysters, and advice for hosting your own cocktail party. This tea-rrific trio’s pairings include a welcome sip of bourbon sweet tea punch with mint, paired with citrus and black tea shortbread; a tea flight of Taiwanese oolong teas plus an oolong-infused gin cocktail, paired with mango-avocado toasts; cold brewed Gyokuro green tea with shiso and Chartreuse sparklers, paired with a spring-inspired bento box of green tea-dusted goat cheeses, green jasmine tea pickled daikon radish and other small bites; pu-erh tea shiitake mushroom soup with a turmeric Bee’s Knee chaser; and a “Burning Branch” mocktail, paired with lapsang souchong smoked apple tart. Guests will receive a copy of The New Cocktail Hour, which is sure to become their go-to how-to for cocktail hour! This menu is fully vegetarian.
