I haven’t been very experimental with drinks. I’m a bit of a classic that way – water, coffee, tea and an occasional fresh glass of juice or soda. I never try the welcome drink at events or browse the mocktail menu at the restaurant.

My first big opportunity in the video-shoot world asked me to develop 14 unique summer cooler recipes, out of which 9 were chosen – such is life! When the lovely guys at SPRIG proposed this, I remained hesitant initially, but since this year is about going out there and doing everything right, I put my head down and got mixing with various ingredients, did a ton of research and a whole bunch of testing and tastings. The shoot took place on the windy beaches of Goa, I worked with some amazing people, and had an experience of a lifetime. Currently a few of those videos are out on YouTube and Facebook, which you can view here

For someone who doesn’t enjoy being in front of the camera, mocktails and outdoor shoots, I can’t help but be amused at how life sometimes turns out!

Anyways, back to this iced tea. Earl Grey tea and lavender is a combination that you already know takes my fancy (cake) and it’s only natural to convert them into a cold drink to beat this sweltering heat. This recipe however, does come from my cousin, Anjali, my partner-in-crime when I’m upto no good! She is one of Kitchen Therapy’s most ardent fans and always the first to support everything and anything I do.
