Mojo creates cocktails with tea for Taylors


mojo leeds taylors of harrogateMojo bar in Leeds has teamed up with Taylors of Harrogate to create special cocktails using the supplier’s teas and coffees.

Bartenders Adam Wilson and Sam Fish created a “Taylors take” on five classic cocktails, using infusions and syrups made from products such as camomile tea, green tea and Earl Grey tea.

For example, they combined strong Yorkshire Tea with the light but flavoursome Jameson whiskey in a Whiskey Sour, adding depth and variety.

Adam said: “The chaps over at Taylors approached us about doing a cocktail masterclass for some of their team, and Sam and I put a few drinks together from various sources to showcase the different methods in which tea and coffee can be prepared for use in drinks.”

The cocktails were enjoyed by the Taylors team and have been featured on the company’s blog and social media pages via www.yorkshiretea.co.uk/blog/2013/10/boozy-brews/.

Dom Dwight, head of internal communications development and brand communications manager at Taylors of Harrogate, said: “This seemed like the perfect opportunity to come up with something fun to share with our loyal online following.

“We loved the idea of asking the talented folk at Mojo to create some top-quality cocktail recipes we could share, and we were blown away by how well the different flavours worked together.

“We love demonstrating the potential of great tea and coffee to be full of fun as well as flavour.”
