Easing into Red

Brooklyn TexasComment

It would be an understatement to call this week harrowing and full of disappointment. Now that we've finally stopped our Claire Danes ugly crying, it's time for a drink, one that's preferably really strong and slightly medicinal. This one is hearty, fruity, and comforting — perfect for a Thursday night of figuring out which causes to donate to and volunteer for (we're starting here). We highly recommend drinking this alongside lots of chocolate cookies, like these to start healing.

Muddle the lemon and pomegranate arils. Mix in the cassis liqueur and strain into two mugs. Top with black tea and enjoy!  Option to add honey or to garnish with a a lemon slice. 

2 cups brewed black tea
1/2 cup cassis liqueur
1/4 cup pomegranate arils
1/2 lemon
