About the Drink

Created by Audrey Saunders

Formulation (from nymag.com)

3/4 ounce fresh lemon juice
1 ounce simple syrup (1:1 sugar-to-water ratio)
1.5 ounce Earl Grey tea-infused Tangueray gin
1 egg white
Garnish: lemon twist

Measure all the ingredients into a mixing glass. Add ice, and shake hard to a 10-second count. Strain into a chilled martini glass, 1/2 rimmed with sugar, and garnish with a lemon twist.

Earl Grey Tea–Infused Tanqueray Gin
1 750 ml bottle of Tanqueray gin (for its flavor and high proof)
4 tablespoons loose, Earl Grey tea

Measure tea into bottle. Cap and shake, and let sit at room temperature for 2 hours. Strain through a fine sieve or coffee filter into a bowl. Rinse out bottle to remove loose tea, and pour infusion back into clean bottle. Will store indefinitely refrigerated.
