Ingredients

  • 2 ounces Earl Grey vodka
  • 3 ounces Earl Grey tea
  • Half a lemon, juiced
  • 1 ounce Simple syrup
  • Fine sugar, for rim
  • Chef notes

    Enjoy your tea and a tipple too with this lovely earl grey-infused cocktail perfect for late-afternoon sipping. 

    Technique tip: The small spout of a teapot will strain the ice just like a shaker would.

    Preparation

    1.

    Combine the vodka, tea, lemon juice and simple syrup in a teapot with ice and stir.

    2.

    Pour a few teaspoons of lemon juice onto a shallow plate and pour fine sugar onto a second shallow plate. Dip the rim of each teacup into the juice then the sugar.

    3.

    Pour the cocktails into the cups and serve.
