Tea & Tonic

What could be more English than Earl Grey Tea & Gin combined? … I don’t know, but this drink certainly reminds me of my mother! One of our first infusions – such a quick, fun & delicious one too! This cocktail is dangerous – it tastes like an Iced Earl Grey tea, but somehow manages to make you feel lightheaded…an odd but welcome sensation! We had two English recipe testers for the following two variations on the tea & Tonic…We also had many others and many votes to decide on the best two…the perfect way to spend an afternoon if you ask me!! Let us know your favorite!

So First there is the Tea & Tonic – a beautiful seasonal variation on the standard Gin & Tonic (which also happens to be my favorite drink!) Let us show you how:

Ingredients: (Makes one 12 oz. drink)

2 Shots Infused Earl Grey Tea Gin (outlined in my infusions post!) – coming soon!

1 shot St. Germain Elderflower Liqueur

1 shot water

Tonic water

Optional – purple tea leaves for garnish

 

Method:

Place the gin, Elderflower & water with Ice in a shaker and shake until chilled

Strain into a tall glass filled with ice cubes

Top with Tonic Water, garnish if desired and enjoy your infused tea!
