This is a bubble tea cocktail fit for royalty. Served in a sugar-rimmed martini glass, it looks fancy and tastes fantastic. The combination of vodka, triple sec, and jasmine tea makes this a truly unique boba cocktail.
This shimmery boba drink is sweet, fun, and an excellent cocktail for parties or festivities. The unsuspecting flavors meld together to create a perfectly balanced fruity cocktail that isn’t overly sweet. I recommend serving this beverage in a martini glass, but you can get creative if you don’t have martini glasses.Print
What Does the Blushing Duchess Bubble Tea Taste Like?
This bubble tea cocktail combines the sweetness of a traditional cosmopolitan with floral hints of jasmine tea. The tea cuts a bit of the sweetness from the cranberry juice and triple sec. The tanginess from the squeeze of fresh lime brings the drink to life, and the sugar rim adds a touch of sweetness to each sip.
How Much Caffeine Does the Blushing Duchess Bubble Tea Have?
In this recipe, there are only about 3 mg of caffeine. In an average cup of jasmine tea, there is about 25 mg of caffeine. Because the recipe only calls for 2 tbsp of jasmine tea, the caffeine levels are minimal.
If you prefer a caffeine-free version, use an herbal or fruit tea.
Can This Boba Drink Be Made Without Alcohol?
You could make this drink without alcohol if you substitute orange juice for the triple sec and add soda water instead of vodka. These substitutions shouldn’t change the taste too much, but the soda water would add some bubbles.
Where Can I Buy the Blushing Duchess Bubble Tea?
If you visit a bubble tea shop and want this drink made by a professional mixologist, then Bubbleology is the place to go. They offer several bubble tea cocktail selections, including the Blushing Duchess, the Majestic Butterfly, the Duke of New York, the City of Dreams Float, and several others.
However, it is important to note that not all Bubbleology locations offer a cocktail menu. Only the East Village store in New York City currently offers these drinks.
Which Toppings Are Best With This Boba Drink?
The edible glitter is optional but makes the drink fun and fancy! Rather than using lychee popping boba, you could use one (or more) of the following:
- Nata de coco
- Lychee jelly
- Vodka-soaked tapioca pearls
- Fresh fruit
- Mango popping boba
- Aloe jelly
