In order to prepare for my tea cocktail session at the World Tea Expo, I’ve been whipping up libations like crazy!
Here is one of my best, with a markedly English disposition – appropriately dubbed The Colonialist Cocktail.
Tea Recipe to Make The Colonialist Cocktail
- 1½ oz. gin
- 2½ oz. Earl Grey Reserve tea, chilled
- ½ oz. fresh lemon juice
- ½ oz. Cointreau
- 2 dashes orange bitters
- orange wheel (optional garnish)
1. Combine ingredients in a shaker with ice.
2. Strain into chilled martini glass, then add the orange wheel.
