A break from the traditional martini, the bergamot in the earl grey adds even more fragrance to the gin.

ice

1 tbsp good loose-leaf Earl Grey tea[/vc_column_text][/vc_column_inner][/vc_row_inner][/vc_column][vc_column width=”1/2″][vc_column_text]

Instructions

Put the Earl Grey tea in a large jug. Pour the gin over and stir with a long-handled spoon (45 seconds).

Strain the gin through a tea strainer over a funnel back into the bottle. You will see small particles of leaf still floating on the top of the gin. Rinse out the jug and, using a coffee filter or some muslin inside the funnel, strain the gin a second time to remove all the particles. By doing this, the gin will be stable and the flavour won’t change

To serve, shake or stir over ice
