Use this tea-based vinegar in a favorite recipe for vinaigrette.
1 cup rice vinegar or white vinegar
1 bag raspberry-, orange-, blackberry-, or cranberry-flavored tea
Add 1/2 teaspoon grated fresh ginger and an orange tea bag to the 1 cup vinegar. Strain vinegar before pouring into the clean bottle. Cover with a cork or nonmetallic lid.
To Present This As a Gift:
You will need a sharp needle; bottle with cork; wire cutters; metallic wire in red and green; 2 silver flat beads; silver pony beads; silver long, thin beads; metallic beads in red, green, and silver; ice pick; and 4 small silver jingle bells. Use needle to make four holes in the cork, top to bottom, like holes in a four-hole button. Cut an 18-inch length of both colors of wire. Fold each piece of wire in half. From the bottom of the cork, push the wire ends through the holes, making an X on the bottom of the cork. Thread two silver flat beads over all wire ends. Thread each wire through a silver pony bead, then through a long, thin silver bead. On the green wires, slide on a red, then a silver bead. On the red wires, slide on a green, then a silver bead. Leaving 1 inch at the end, wrap the wire ends around an ice pick to curl; remove ice pick. Slip a jingle bell on the end of each wire. Loop the wire ends to secure the jingle bells. Thread metallic beads on a 6-inch length of wire. Thread on enough beads to go around the neck of the bottle. Twist the wire ends together to secure. Trim the excess wire.
Also Try This:
The beaded ring around the bottle neck can also be used as a napkin ring. Make numerous rings in this same manner and give them as a matching set.
