Earl Grey Tea Martini


  • 1.5 oz Earl Grey-infused gin
  • White sugar for rimming
  • Lemon slices
  • 1.5 oz fresh lemon juice


1. Earl Grey-Infused Gin:

  • Start by infusing your favorite gin with the Earl Grey tea. This step can be done in advance for convenience.
  • In a clean glass jar, combine 1 cup of your chosen gin with 2-3 Earl Grey spoons. Seal the jar and let it sit in a cool, dark place for at least 2–3 hours, or until the desired flavor is achieved.
  • Once infused, strain the gin to remove the loose tea.

2. Preparing the Glass

  • Begin by preparing your martini glass. Take a lemon slice and run it along the rim of the glass.
  • Dip the moistened rim into a plate of white sugar to create a delightful sugary rim that complements the tea-infused cocktail.

3. Mixing the Earl Grey Martini

  • In a cocktail shaker filled with ice, combine 1.5 oz of the Earl Grey-infused gin with 1.5 oz of fresh lemon juice.
  • Shake the mixture vigorously for about 15–20 seconds. This not only chills the ingredients but also ensures a perfectly blended cocktail.

4. Straining and Serving

  • Strain the infused gin and lemon juice mixture into your prepared martini glass.
  • The sugared rim adds a touch of sweetness that balances the tea's depth and the citrusy zing of the lemon.

5. Garnish and Enjoy

  • Garnish your Earl Grey Martini with a thin slice of lemon or a twist for an extra burst of citrus aroma.
  • Take a moment to savor the harmonious blend of the Earl Grey-infused gin and the refreshing lemon juice. The sophisticated notes will dance on your palate, leaving you with a sense of indulgence.

The Earl Grey Martini is a delightful fusion of tradition and modernity, offering a unique twist to your cocktail repertoire. Whether you're hosting a soirée or unwinding after a long day, this elegant concoction is sure to elevate your spirits. Cheers to the perfect blend of tea and spirits! 🍃🍸
