According to the dictionary, a “Bohemian” is a person “who lives and acts free of regard for conventional rules and practices.” (We bring up the term because Bohemian Raspberry is one of the prime ingredients of this blend.) The term rose to prominence back in the earlier parts of the 20th century when artists and writers began to congregate at watering holes from Rio de Janiero, to Paris, to Sydney Australia, to chat, talk about art and drink. (Mostly to drink.) And while these bearded, beaded, typically long-haired nomads are usually pictured imbibing copious amounts of red wine, many were also partial to cocktails. These were often flavored with fresh, seasonal fruit from whichever country they happened to find themselves in.
As a throwback to a more artistic, and well-lubricated age, we offer the Berri Teani, a tantalizing blend of all-natural berries, peels and petals, all but guaranteed to spark a conversation. Stunning on its own, or imminently soothing when used as a martini mixer, this is one brew we like to think of as a work of art, all its own.
Marteani ideas: The Bohemian Infusion
This fabulous, simple way to spruce up vodka will have you singing all the way to the bar. For added flair, infuse your vodka in old mason jars. You‟ll need:
• 2 jars
• Enough vodka to fill the jar
• ½ cup Berri Tea blend
Simply infuse your vodka with the tea blend and let it sit in a refrigerator for a roughly a week. When ready, strain the vodka from one jar to the other. When you’re ready to mix cocktails, blend one shot of the infused vodka with soda water, et voila!
