Earl Grey Tea Cocktail

Earl Grey Tea Cocktail

30th Dec 2020

This refreshing and flavourful Earl Grey cocktail is easy to make, takes little preparation and has only a few key ingredients. It contains caffeine so works well as a satisfying and invigorating pick-me-up and is great at any time of the year. 


  • 50ml of a Dry London Gin such as Bombay Sapphire - as an non-alcoholic option you could try Canelo (Light & Zesty) or an alternative that has a juniper berry and botanical base
  • Small teapot of Earl Grey Classic 
  • 1/2 teaspoon of fresh lemon juice (add more as required)
  • 1 teaspoon of honey or sugar (add more as required)
  • Slice of lemon to garnish or alternatively try a sprig of lavender/ rosemary
  • Ice cubes


Step 1

Brew the loose leaf Earl Grey Classic tea with hot water (for 3 or 4 minutes) and allow to chill in the fridge. Use 1 teaspoon for 1 cup.

We recommend making a small batch (a teapot), so that you can make more than one cocktail and enjoy later.

Step 2

Fill a tumbler with ice and pour in the gin and fill the rest with chilled tea. Add the lemon juice and honey/sugar to taste - add more if necessary to achieve the preferred taste.

Step 3

Stir well and add the lemon slice and an optional lavender/ rosemary sprig to garnish. 

Enjoy your easy tea-infused cocktail.
