When I made our lemon-ginger tea, Nip's Tea™, a few years ago, I felt so motivated. Nipsey Hussle (RIP) is a great example of the power of self-belief and hard work. Too often the stories we see of successful entrepreneurs are completely false. So many of the self-made entrepreneurs on the cover of Fortune and Entrepreneur aren't self-made at all - starting with an incredible lead, their faces are plastered all over magazines designed to "inspire" me. But not Nipsey Hussle. He was the real deal, put in the work, believed in himself, stayed down and was so deserving of his come up. I took that appreciation of his work ethic and put it all into Nip's Tea™.
El Boozy Vegan, our favorite bartender, used our lemon-ginger tea, Nip's Tea™, and our pepper infused honey, Cut It, for this special cocktail that features gin and aquafaba.
Quick note: you're probably wondering what aquafaba is...I know I was haha. Aquafaba is the liquid in your can of garbanzo beans, or chickpeas. El Boozy Vegan refers to it as "chickpea brine" in his recipe. So, use your aquafaba wisely and drink tea like an adult®.
