Footnotes

  • Cook's Note
  • To make it easier, the Earl Grey infused gin can be made in a large quantity ahead of time. To infuse the gin, pour 1 liter of gin over 1/4 cup of Earl Grey tea leaves in a glass or metal bowl, and allow to steep for 2 hours. Afterwards, strain the gin back into its bottle. Do not press the tea leaves to extract excess gin - this can make the infusion bitter.

Absolutely amazing!!! Earl Grey tea bags work just fine and don't require any straining. I used one in lieu of each teaspoon of loose leaves. This is perhaps the best cocktail I've ever had!

This drink is amazing! I first had it at the Encore hotel in Las Vegas at one of their bars--it was their signature drink. I fell in love with it and had to replicate it at home. And this is it! I use vodka instead of gin (that is just my preference), and couldn't be happier.

EXCELLENT! Taste just like the "T' Martini at Bellagio. The only issue I had is that it makes either one decent sized martini or two tiny martinis. Either way it is delicious and easy peasy to make. Like others, I steeped a earl grey tea bag instead of loose leaves. Thanks so much for sharing!
