Earl Grey Cocktail

What to do when you love the concept of afternoon tea, but also like the fact that the days are getting longer and warmer and you feel an urge for ice cold cocktails? You combine the two of course, with this mild and soothing cooler – the Earl Grey Cocktail!

This sophisticated drink, is perfect for an early evening drink with good friends. It’s refreshing and quite easy to make. And as a bonus, you can be reasonably sure that many in the company haven’t tasted Earl Grey Tea like this before.

We hereby declare the bar open!

Did you know?

The tea is named after Charles Grey (1764 – 1845), the second Earl of Grey, who was prime minister in Britain in the 1830s. It is said that Lady Grey served it to when entertaining her guests in London, and it was so popular that she was asked if it could be sold to others, which is how Twinings came to market it as a brand.
