Typically we infuse spirits
with fruits or herbs, but a tea? It's interesting and a nice change of pace, especially for sprucing up an aged
rum like the Flor de Caña 4 year. The really nice part is that it only takes about an hour for the infusion. When this infusion is mixed in the Mad Hatter's Tea Party gets even better, especially with the ginger syrup, which you can make by doing yet another infusion similar to these simple syrups using pureed ginger
