Earl Grey Cocktail for a Sophisticated Sip

By December 10th, 2018 Drinks and Smoothies, Entertaining, Party Foods

An Earl Grey Cocktail is the perfect tea cocktail. This sip gives you a sophisticated taste with a slightly sweet finish.

 

Tea is a perfect ingredient for creating new cocktails. And Earl Grey tea is the perfect one to make this refreshing alcoholic tea cocktail! Grab some Earl Grey tea from your cupboard and let’s get started.

Earl Grey Tea Cocktail with lemon curl and rum

Earl Grey tea is traditionally made with black tea and bergamot oil, giving it a rich but citrusy flavor. Besides making a delicious tea, it’s used to flavor cakes and chocolates. Today we are making it into a cocktail!

 

This Earl Grey Cocktail is a simple and refreshing alcoholic tea.

 

To make the Earl Grey Cocktail, a chic cocktail infused with tea, all you need to do is add simple syrup (instructions below) to prepared tea and top it off with fresh lemon juice and rum. It’s as easy as that!

Make sure to make your tea and cool it. You don’t want a hot tea mixed with the other elements and ice or it will water down quickly.

How to make simple syrup:

  • Simmer equal parts sugar and water in a saucepan until sugar dissolves
  • Cool before using

Tea cocktails are fun, and a great way to switch things up!

 

What’s a cocktail without the garnishes? I am all about presentation, and my drinks are no exception.

How to garnish the Earl Grey Cocktail:

  • For a lemon curl use a vegetable peeler. Peel the lemon in a circular motion for a good curl, instead of a straight strip.
  • Use whole herb sprigs in place of a stir stick. And beauty doesn’t have to be on the rim, slices of fruit mixed with the ice are also considered garnishes.

So sit back and relax, and enjoy this sophisticated tea cocktail perfect for any gathering.
