Infused Gin

1 bottle gin, preferably Hayman's Old Tom gin

3 Earl Grey tea bags

Hayman's Tea

3/4 ounce fresh-squeezed lemon juice

3/4 ounce honey syrup, equal parts honey and water

1/2 ounce St. Germain elderflower liqueur

1 1/2 ounces infused gin

Lemon twist, to garnish


  1. Infused gin: Pour the bottle of gin into a 2-quart container with a lid. Add tea bags, stir, and set aside to infuse, 15 minutes. (Don't leave the tea bags in longer or the gin will be bitter.)
  2. The tea-infused gin will take on a rich amber color. Remove and discard the tea bags. Place a funnel over the gin bottle and return the gin to the bottle.
  3. Put lemon juice, honey syrup, St. Germain, and infused gin in a cocktail shaker. Fill a coupe glass with ice cubes to chill. Fill the cocktail shaker with ice cubes. Cover and shake briefly, about 5 seconds. Discard the ice cubes from the coupe glass and strain the cocktail into it. Finish by placing a twisted lemon peel directly on top of the cocktail. Serve.
