Sasha Graham’s Tarot Card a Day Blog – Tarot Drinks

More Tarot Inspired Drinks

 

 

I created the Tarot Theme Drinks for the 2008 Readers Studio. I’ve been asked to do drinks for the whole Major Arcana. Well, I don’t have ‘em all but here are five new ones. Enjoy!

The Fool

This drink is inspired by Juvinex, my favorite spa in NYC. They serve this with fresh fruit after you’ve been massaged, scrubbed and soaked. Talk about a fresh start! I can’t think of a better way to start anything and as we know, the Fool is all about beginnings.

Tall glass of purified water.

4 thin slices of English Seedless Cucumber

Combine and pour over ice.

The Magician

Who doesn’t enjoy pondering their Magician qualities first thing in the morning? Sip this delicious drink and think about how electric you’re going to be all day!

1-cup strong coffee

¼ cup milk

1 tablespoon chocolate syrup

1 dash peppermint extract or crushed fresh mint

sugar to taste

Shake all ingredients in a martini shaker and pour over ice.

The High Priestess

They say Sage is carried for wisdom and I don’t know any Readers who don’t tap into the wisdom of the High Priestess.

Sage Tea

½ oz fresh sage leaves

1-teaspoon sugar

½ teaspoon cinnamon

¼ oz grated lemon rind

Juice of one lemon

1-quart water

Bring water to a simmer, and add the rest of the ingredients. Steep for 30 minutes. Strain and serve iced.

The Empress

If you don’t have proper Champagne flutes, go to Crate and Barrel and get some. The Empress wouldn’t dream of drinking out of anything less fabulous and neither should you.

1 glass Champagne (the good stuff because you deserve it)

Healthy splash Chambord raspberry liqueur

Combine and enjoy.

Hint – Morning juice served in Champagne flutes at breakfast make eggs and toast extra special!

The Emperor

There is something about Emperors and beer that seem to go together. . .

Black and Tan

1 can/bottle Guinness

1 can/bottle pale beer like Bass

With Emperor precision, hold your pint glass at an angle, and fill halfway with Bass. Slowly, very slowly, trickle the Guinness down the side of the glass, creating a layered effect like a cappuchino. Keep slowly pouring Guinness until full. Now, sit back in your throne and enjoy!
