This month's Gin of the Month box contains delicious Earl Grey tea from the wonderful Whittard of Chelsea. Combine Earl Grey and gin to make a sophisticated, citrus infused martini.
Earl Grey Martini
Infuse the teabag in the gin for 10 minutes at room temperature. Combine the tea-infused gin, lemon juice, sugar syrup and egg white in a cocktail shaker. Dry-shake without any ice to emulsify the egg. Open and add very cold ice; shake again until cold. Strain into a chilled cocktail glass.
1 Earl Grey teabag
25ml freshly squeezed lemon juice
25ml sugar syrup (1:1 sugar and water)
1 egg white (optional)
