Japanese Tea Garden

This is a new creation, and one I am pretty proud of. I was struggling to find a drink that would reflect Japanese tastes without using rum, but still within the means of my bar. I can't just get shochu at the corner, man. So I dabbled and came up with this monster, which is pretty pleasing. I like that I threw in a little Bushmills, because what is a Japanese drink without whiskey?
  • 1 1/2 oz. Bombay Sapphire East
  • 1 oz. Republic of Tea Ginger Peach Tea
  • 1/2 oz. Bushmills Irish Honey
  • 1/4 oz. simple syrup
  • 1/4 oz. lemon juice
  • 1 tsp. ginger liqueur (Domaine Canton)
  • 1 tsp. St. Germain
Shake all ingredients with ice in a shaker. Strain into a highball glass filled with ice. Garnish with a pineapple spear.
