Recipe: Emoliente


Today we are making a special drink. When our Bar Manager Miguel visited Peru there were loads of street vendors selling something called _emoliente_; an herbal tea prepared in the Andes made from medicinal herbs and plants.

A great drink to get you warm, add some minerals and vitamins to your diet and boost your body. It’s one of the most popular drinks on our menu at Andina, Shoreditch. Especially for breakfast.

20 g roasted barley
4 g chamomile
4 g horse tail
¼ of a pineapple
¼ of an apple skin
25 g quince jelly or aloe vera
20 g linseed
2 litres of water


Step 1: Making emoliente is very easy. Just put all the ingredients in a large pot with the water, boil for 20 minutes, strain and then serve with a squeeze of lime and some honey. Note: quince jelly is added to the pot, but aloe vera is scraped after into the pot. Enjoy!
