English Breakfast Tea Cocktail
Full bodied black teas such as Hope & Glory English Breakfast work well in cocktails because their dominant flavours come through, even when mixed with spirits.
Gin & tea – how frightfully English!
4 Hope & Glory English Breakfast pyramids
4 tsp Hope & Glory English Breakfast tea leaves
500ml (18oz) boiled water
200gm caster sugar
400ml (14oz) dry gin
2 x lemons
INFUSE pyramids in 400ml of boiled water, for 5 minutes
REMOVE pyramids, or strain if loose, refrigerate to cool.
MIX 200gm caster sugar and 100ml boiling water to make a sugar syrup, allow to cool.
COMBINE cooled syrup & tea with 400ml of dry gin and 200ml of fresh lemon juice in a jug or teapot.
POUR into a glass or teacup. Garnish with fine slices of lemon.
