Lady Jane {an earl grey gin cocktail}

Tea infused cocktails have been some of my favorite things to play around with in the past year. I’ve used everything from matcha green tea to coconut vanilla tea and have found them all to work beautifully when mixed with spirits. Keeping all this in mind, I decided to add a bag of earl grey tea to a cup of gin. The result? This fabulous earl grey gin cocktail.

At it’s core, this earl grey gin cocktail is really a variation of the Bee’s Knees. I infused the gin with earl grey tea, swapped the honey syrup for lavender simple syrup and added an egg white. There are countless other variations you could do with this classic cocktail, for example you could try this cucumber gin cocktail with fennel honey. I think that’s the reason why it’s one of my favorites. It’s so simple and so easy to tweak.

For the lavender simple syrup in the drink, I used Ash Apothecary’s Lavender Bud Syrup. Yes, you could make your own. Yes, you could also make lavender honey syrup. I decided not to because I had this on hand and really wanted to try it in a cocktail before the kids used it all in their kid drinks.

    This is gorgeous! Big props on the addition of the egg! The soft froth with the lavender is inspired!

    This is my first time making a drink with egg white. The drink tasted great, but my egg curdled. Maybe if the egg is shaken by itself, at the end, it would work better?
