Blueberry Tea

Still snowing here and it's just after 3pm, which makes it "snow day" cocktail time, doesn't it?
Yep, Blueberry Tea isn't much tea at all, more of a cocktail.  It's a strange combination of liqueurs; Grand Marnier (my favorite!) and Amaretto- somehow that magical mixture makes a blueberry part.  Plus hot tea, that's the tea part. 

Mmmm, tastes like hot Blueberry Tea.  Really! Or close enough... 
You don't need a snifter, but it is how they are served in restaurants because it helps to concentrate the wonderful aromas wafting from your glass, but you can use a mug.

Stay warm folks, can't believe the snow hasn't let up all day. Yuck.

Makes one

1 jigger Grand Mariner (1 oz.)
1 jigger Amaretto (1 oz.)
1 tea bag, orange pekoe or black tea
1 snifter
Hot water

Add the liqueurs to a snifter, add the tea bag and then fill with hot water.  NOTE:  Water shouldn't be too boiling; you don't want to break your glass.  Let the tea steep for a minute or two, then sip and enjoy.

Be careful, the snifter is pretty hot, you're going to have it hold it from the footed bottom for a while!
