This Earl Grey Martini will have you feeling like you're sat in a swanky cocktail bar in the comfort of your own home. Impress your guests with a liquid dessert, or even treat yourself at the end of a long day. Made with gin, fresh lemon juice, and, of course, earl grey tea.
Prepare the martini glass. Add the lemon juice and sugar to separate small shallow plates. Dip the rim of the martini glass in the lemon juice, then in the sugar to coat
Add the cocktail ingredients to a cocktail shaker and secure the lid. Shake vigorously for 20-30 seconds. Strain into the prepared martini glass and garnish with a twist of lemon peel.
*Strong brewed earl grey tea: To avoid bitter tea and, as a result, a bitter cocktail, brew your tea for the amount of time stated in the instructions, but use twice as much tea as directed. Do not brew your tea longer than instructed or it will release to many tanins giving it a drying and unpleasant bitterness.
