Julia Momose’s Tea Vermouth Cocktail

Julia Momose says this is her favorite drink to mix after a long day of work. She says you can combine almost any kind of vermouth with green tea and it’ll taste great. “Be it sweet, bianco or ambre vermouth, this cocktail template is a nice place to start for mixing an invigorating low-proof vermouth and tea cocktail.”


  • Absinthe
  • 2 oz. vermouth
  • 1½ oz. chilled green tea (Momose likes Gyokuro)
  • 2 dashes aromatic bitters (such as Angostura)
  • Lemon peel
  • Tools:mixing glass, barspoon
  • Glass:wine
  • Garnish:blood orange wheel


Spritz the inside of a chilled wine glass with absinthe, then set aside. Combine the other ingredients in a mixing glass, then stir gently with ice to chill. Strain the cocktail into the prepared glass. Twist a lemon peel over the drink to release the lemon oils, then garnish.
