Cocktail hour {Earl grey gin and tonic}


Hey there friendly friends!

Anyone else out there super into the 50's Mad Men style cocktails lately???  Pretty sure Jared and I have had our weight in old fashioneds, our new fave.  I wanted to jazz things up a bit when I made homemade earl grey infused gin a couple of weeks ago.  I attempted a cocktail that blended the way I make gin and tonic, AND earl grey tea- lime and honey.





 



Well....... this was amazingly tasty....... BUT- make sure you stir and stir and stir that honey in.  It doesn't really like to dissolve easily in this cold cocktail.  Also, I found that drinking with a straw and using it as a stir stick while drinking really helped.  Otherwise, you may end up with a mouthful of honey at the end.

Will definitely attempt this one again!
