Jasper Iced Tea from Eilat/ Israel

Jasper Iced Tea Cocktail

What to do in Germany in cold February. Right! You get on the plane and visit sunny Israel. Really nice it is in Eilat on the Red Sea. Near the beach you will find the best cocktail bar in the city: Jasper 08. In February the temperatures in Eilat are only 25 degrees Celsius, but in summer they rise to 45 degrees Celsius. So the Jasper Iced Tea cocktail is a great refreshment.

I was very glad, that the manager Vera of Jasper 08 gave me the opportunity, that her bartender Erez showed me the making of Jasper Iced Tea. Eilat is very easy to reach via the newly built Eilat Ramon Airport and when you arrive in Eilat you must visit the Jasper 08 cocktail bar.
