As I approach the end of my pregnancy, my mind has a tendency to wander to cocktail hour very easily. The closest I can get right now is tea time, and I have been enjoying a wide variety of teas, including breaking out the Earl Grey varieties imported from across the pond.
I discovered this cocktail as I was browsing what I could put into my Earl Grey and I can not wait to give it a test. An Earl Grey Cocktail!
You can easily make your own Earl Grey-infused gin by combining 1 cup of gin with 3 earl grey tea bags and 2 tsp dried lavender. Let it sit for a couple of hours and then strain. Same for simple syrup – just bring equal parts sugar and water to a boil and let it cool before using.
