On the search for a signature cocktail, some prefer a mildly-inebriating drink they can enjoy at sundown. Here we have our version of an iced tea cocktail—a play on well-known cocktails such as an Arnold Palmer or a Southern Iced Tea, this drink combines the spiciness of ginger, the sweetness of pears, and the fruity tang of lemon. We took a sophisticated route on this cocktail and used white rum and jasmine tea for fragrant and light tones, a refreshing treat for sunny days.
