This Isn’t Goodbye: A Green Tea Punch

Green tea gets a fizzy boost from sparkling wine in this simple summer punch. “The bubbles and floral, citrus notes of the wine help highlight the more complex earthiness of the green tea, while the dryness balances the sweetness of the honey,” says Nicholas Dowling, co-owner and bartender at Daps Breakfast & Imbibe in Charleston. “Wine allows you to incorporate a ton of flavor and complexity into a cocktail without overwhelming the palate with a lot of alcohol.”


  • 1 750 ml. bottle dry sparkling white wine
  • 12 oz. brewed green tea, chilled
  • 3 oz. fresh lemon juice
  • 9 oz. honey syrup (2:1)
  • Tools:punch bowl, ladle
  • Glass:punch or stemless wine
  • Garnish:mint leaves, lemon wheels


Mix all the ingredients together in a punch bowl with a large block of ice to chill. Garnish with fresh mint leaves and lemon wheels.
