Earl Grey Tea Cocktail

Comments

EarlGreyTeaCocktail2EarlGrayTeaCocktail1EarlGreyCocktail3It must be the caffeine in the tea, or maybe it’s the combination of the gin, tea and honey… whatever it is, this Earl Grey tea cocktail is an energy booster! I’ll sip on one when Zan comes home from work and I’m like an Energizer bunny until 12am. It has a very mild flavor, like tea with a dash of lemon, a touch of lavender and then lightly sweetened with honey simple syrup. If you’re looking for a “healthy” cocktail, this recipe is great! It’s incredibly refreshing and easy to make because you can do the prep work beforehand. It also makes a great early evening cocktail… if you want to stay up! Sometimes I need the push to get me through my midnight work schedule!

    what does “enough to makea few cocktails” mean? 2 glasses, more? I’m thinking about making this tomorrow, for a party of about 6 people and I’m trying to figure out how much to make. Any suggestions would be much appreciated. 🙂

    I suggest putting the lavender into the honey as you make the syrup – you will have a deeper, richer taste of both. The lavender looks great as a garnish.
