Spiced Strawberry Bellini
STRAWBERRIES, cardamom, cinnamon, sage, honey. This deliciously sweet cocktail which includes our exclusive APHRODISIAC TEA BLEND has all of these romance inspiring ingredients. In Ancient Rome, the strawberry was a symbol of Venus. Timeless cinnamon and cardamom, two wondrous warming spices, have long been appreciated as stimulating to the senses.
We’ve added a spicy, botanical twist to the classically sweet Bellini, which originated in the 1930s or 40s.
