The #PaletteForYourPalate Tea Cocktail Hyde Park Haiku is Mixologist Steven Minor’s creation, inspired by TEALEAVES Organic Long Life Green + Pantone 349C + Mood: Enlightened.

 

Notes from Steven Minor, MO Bar & Lounge Manager at Mandarin Oriental, Miami:

 

“I decided to go with cucumber, Asian pear, sake and shiso. Shiso has a very unique flavor, almost cumin-like. We finished off with a splash of Prosecco to add effervescence and acidity to the drink.”
