Serving up a festive alternative to mulled wine or cider this December, the community focused Real Tea People are setting up Tea and Alcohol at Brixton Cornercopia on Friday and Saturday evenings throughout December to introduce its selection of tea based cocktails to Brixton.
They have also employed an ex-inmate of Brixton prison in the kitchen, through the mentoring charity Switchback.
As their name articulates Tea and Alcohol will serve classic “cocktails made better by tea” so expect warming Ceylon Whisky Toddies and Hot Arrack Chai as well as Grey and Tonics and English Breakfast Martinis.
After launching last weekend, Tea and Alcohol returns to Brixton Cornercopia (65 Brixton Village Market, Granville Arcade SW9 8PS) this weekend (6.30pm – 11pm Fridays and Saturdays in December – 12th, 13th, 19th, 20th and 27th).
