Gotta Drink 'Em All! Cocktails for #010 Caterpie through #018 Pidgeot

#010: Caterpie

Caterpie calls the wilds of Viridian Forest its home, subsisting on leaves and foliage. It's only appropriate that a drink inspired by the Pokemon should pay homage. 

The Caterpie is a vodka drink, with the addition of a delicious, herbal, and refreshing mixture of tea and rosemary. While I used a simple Earl Grey tea for this recipe, you can feel free to use your favorite tea for the Caterpie. Just note that herbal teas generally work best, as spice or fruit-based teas will not play well with the flavors we're dealing with here.

Anyway.

Make the tea mixture by boiling some water with some tea bags in it, as well as a sprig or two of rosemary-- about 1 tea bag and 1 sprig of rosemary per cup of water. Allow the mixture to cool fully. After it has cooled, prepare a cocktail shaker with ice, and add a shot's worth of vodka. Cover with the tea mixture (about 3 shots worth, give or take) and shake to give the final drink a nice string-shot-looking layer of foam on top. Garnish with a sprig of rosemary and enjoy. Do so responsibly, though. This drink is sure to lower your speed stat if you have too much.

TL;DR VERSION

Add 4.5 oz of a tea and rosemary mixture to a cocktail shaker along with 1.5 oz of vodka. Shake, and serve in a chilled glass. Garnish with rosemary.
