Some Gin and Some Tea, what could go wrong?

I love a good infusion. This one marries the florals of gin with Early Grey Tea and a little lavender. Add a little lime juice and you have a wonderful cocktail. This twist on a gimlet is perfect for a tea party or if you are me, a little couch time with a book. The first thing you have to do is infuse gin with tea and lavender. I use a small mason jar, put a sprig of lavender and a bag of earl grey tea, then pour about two shots of gin. I do this because I'm just making one cocktail so if you are making two double the gin and the time to infuse. For my single cocktail, it takes about 48 hours to infuse. You want to wait until the gin has some color to it. Also try to keep it in a cool dark place.

Tea or Gin?

Gin Gimlet


2 oz Infused Gin

1 oz Lime juice

3/4 oz Simple Syrup

Garnish: Lime Twist

Recipe: In a cocktail shaker with ice, pour all ingredients. Shake until cold. Pour into a coupe glass. Garnish with a lime twist. For extra lime flavor, use your lime twist to rim the glass with the oils. Enjoy this sipping cocktail with a little sweet snack. It pairs beautifully with some afternoon snacks like sandwiches and cookies.
