Earl Gray Marteani

I am a huge fan of Audrey Saunders. You have to admire someone who thinks that gin is the other white meat.

Also she is the creator of two of my favorite cocktails Gin Gin Mule and Old Cuban.

This is another of her creations. A friend of mine ordered it, when we visited Pegu Club last week. She let me had a taste and now I can mix my own.

The only little tweak I have made is using Earl Gray simple syrup instead of ordinary simple syrup:
  •  4,5 cl Earl Gray gin*
  • 2 cl fresh squeezed lemon juice
  • 1,5 cl Earl Gray - or ordinary - simple syrup**
  • Egg white
Put all ingredients in a shaker without ice and shake for 20-30 seconds. Then add ice and shake until shaker is cold. Strain into martini glass.

* Earl Gray gin steep a teaspoon of loose Earl Gray tea in 2 dl gin for at least 2 hours. Strain.

** Cook equal measures sugar and brewed earl gray tea for 2-3 minutes and cool off.
