Collaboration is the new recipe for business success, and we enjoyed a great example last night when The Spice and Tea Exchange on St. Armands hosted a spice-infused dinner with neighbor Tommy Bahama. From the (non-alcoholic) ginger jasmine-tini to the Bosc pear crisp, great flavors and fun. For info on upcoming dinners, call (388-1411). And if you'd like to try making your own ginger jasmin-tini, simply follow the recipe below!


Ginger Jasmine-Tini

2 oz. ginger jasmine syrup (see below)

4 oz. cucumber cubes

2.5 oz. soda water


Muddle cucumber. Add syrup, soda water and ice. Stir to mix, strain into glass and garnish with ginger sugar.


Ginger Jasmine Syrup

1 tsp. minced ginger

3/4 cup sugar

1/2 cup water

Loose jasmine tea from four bags

1/4 cup fresh lime juice

In a saucepan, bring water, sugar, ginger and four jasmine tea bags to a boil, remove from heat and steep for 5-7 minutes. Remove tea bags and cool to room temperature. Strain through cheesecloth and add lime juice. Double/triple recipe if needed.


P.S. If you'd like to add alcohol, we recommend using vodka, as it will be the least likely to disturb the flavors of the drink.
