Glue or tape
Our parasol patterns
Cut your wooden skewers to a couple of inches longer than the height of your drinking glasses.
Download and print our umbrella designs onto plain white paper. Cut them out with scissors, then cut along the dotted line.
Create a cone by slightly overlapping the edges; secure using a glue stick or tape underneath. Poke a skewer through the underside of the cone’s point and place inside your cup.

The minute we spotted this creative beverage on Pepper.ph we thought what a great idea! Ice cubes made with English Breakfast tea, fresh ginger and lemon to flavor your cola. Why didn’t we think of that!
We recommend using Stash English Breakfast Black Tea or Stash English Breakfast Decaf Black Tea for this beverage.
Kori Ginger Coke
3 cans regular Coca Cola
2 bags English Breakfast tea
3 pieces thumb-sized peeled ginger (about 2 Tbsp)

Heat and boil for 2 minutes. (Start count when it begins to boil.)
