Earl Grey Tea Cocktail
If you're looking for a "healthy" cocktail, this recipe is great! It has a mild flavor, like tea with a dash of lemon, a touch of lavender and then lightly sweetened with honey simple syrup.
Servings: 1 cocktail
- 6 ounces Cold Earl Grey tea
- 1¼ ounces good quality gin
- 1¼ ounces honey simple syrup (5 cups water, 1 cup honey in saucepan. Simmer until honey is dissolved)
- 1/4 ounce fresh-squeezed lemon juice
- 2 sprigs lavender
Brew 4 cups Earl Grey tea. This will give you enough to make a few cocktails. Store in the refrigerator to keep cold.
Make a batch of honey simple syrup to store in the fridge as well. 5 cups water, 1 cup honey.
Bring to a simmer until honey has dissolved.
Then cool in the fridge.
Add all of the above ingredients into a cocktail shaker, with 2 sprigs lavender and ice.
Shake several times. Then strain the cocktail into a glass over one large ice cube.
Garnish with lavender.
