Earl Grey MarTEAni Recipe

Not only are the British tea obsessed, we’re also becoming gin obsessed – so how about we combine those two traditions with an Earl Grey MarTEAni?

Is there anything more quintessentially British than a good old cup of tea?  English breakfast tea in the morning followed by a cup of Early Grey in the afternoon is quite traditional.

If you’ve subscribed to the January Gin Explorer Box, you will have received 2 sample tea bags from the English Tea Shop so we thought we’d take the tea theme and mix it with a gin theme! The subtle botanicals in the gin pair nicely with the earl grey and lemon flavours, making this a very delicate and aromatic cocktail.

Ingredients:

  • 50ml gin (with it’s Earl Grey botanicals, FEW Breakfast Gin would work perfectly.)
  • 35ml strong cold Earl Grey tea
  • 20ml lemon juice
  • 12.5ml sugar syrup
  • ½ free-range egg white (If the thought of a raw egg turns your tummy slightly, you can leave it out, the egg that adds the frothiness on top)
  • Lemon, to garnish

Method:

  • Make the earl grey tea strong (the stronger, the tea, the more intense the flavour) and leave to cool completely
  • In a cocktail shaker, put the gin, cold tea, lemon juice, sugar syrup and egg white
  • Shake it, shake it, shake it!!
  • Double strain into a martini glass
  • Garnish with either a twist of lemon peel or a slice
