Peppermint Tea Margarita Cocktail


Peppermint Tea Margarita

The #PaletteForYourPalate Tea Cocktail Peppermint Tea Margarita is Outlets Manager Kevin Spicknell’s creation, inspired by TEALEAVES Organic Peppermint + Pantone 290C + Mood: Refreshed.


Brisk and refreshing, these Organic Peppermint leaves provide a perfect match for a cool encounter.


The chill air of the polar bear's Arctic, blows crisp and cool.


Tender and soothing, with a subtle touch of warmth, this calm and quiet blue hue replenishes body and soul.

Peppermint Margarita

“The flavor of Organic Peppermint was our starting point. We mixed in some premium Patrón Tequila, along with lime juice and simple syrup. Then Blue Curaçao, as well as Hpnotiq to soak the blueberries, to achieve the blue hue.”
