Earl Grey Margarita | Tea Cocktail
Bergamot, a hybrid of the sweet lime and part of our Hope & Glory Earl Grey tea, is the perfect partner for a classic Margarita; sweetness, sourness, bitterness and salt in equal measure.
2 Hope & Glory Earl Grey teabags or
2 tsp Hope & Glory Earl Grey tea leaves
250ml (9oz) caster sugar
250ml (9oz) boiled water
50ml (2oz) Tequila
25ml (1oz) fresh lime juice
INFUSE pyramids for 5 minutes in 250ml of boiled water and 250ml caster sugar to make a tea syrup, stir until sugar dissolves.
REMOVE pyramid, or strain if loose, refrigerate to cool.
COMBINE 15ml of cooled Earl Grey tea syrup, with 50ml of tequila and 25ml of fresh lime juice.
SHAKE over ice, and strain into a chilled margarita coupette, the edges of which have been dusted with salt.
