The Earl Grey

1

2 oz gin

3/4 oz fresh lemon juice

3/4 oz Earl Grey simple syrup

3 dashes of lemongrass bitters

lemon wheel for garnish


Earl Grey Simple Syrup

2 cups sugar

1 1⁄2 cups cold water

2 tablespoons corn syrup

4 good quality Earl Grey tea bags

Mix all ingredients over ice in a cocktail shaker and strain into a coupe glass. Garnish with a lemon wheel 


Earl Grey Simple Syrup

Combine the sugar, water, and corn syrup in medium saucepan and cook over medium heat for about 5 minutes, until all the sugar is completely dissolved. Once the sugar just comes to a boil, lower to simmer and add the tea bags. Continue to cook on low for 5 minutes. Turn off heat and let sit and steep for at least 30 minutes or longer. When cool, pour into a storage container or squeeze bottle and refrigerate until ready to use.
