Earl Grey Martini
Earl Grey tea plus martinis equals unparalleled classiness.
- 1 teaspoon Earl Grey tea leaves
- 2 1.5 fluid ounce jiggers gin
- white sugar for rimming
- 1 wedge lemon
- 1 1.5 fluid ounce jigger fresh lemon juice
- 2 fluid ounces simple syrup
Pour the gin into a small glass, then sprinkle the tea leaves over it. Let the tea steep for 2 hours.
Pour 1/4 to 1/2 inch of sugar onto a small plate and moisten the rims of 2 martini glasses with the lemon wedge. Dip the moistened glasses into the sugar to make your prepped glasses.
Strain the tea-infused gin, lemon juice, and simple syrup into a cocktail shaker over ice. Put the cover on and shake that thing up until the outside of the shaker gets frosty. Strain the drink into the rimmed glasses and serve.
