Ingredients
  • For the Cocktail:
  • 2 part (60ml) Earl Grey and blackcurrant jam syrup (see below)
  • 2 part (60ml) gin (eg. Bombay Sapphire)
  • 2 part (60ml) lemon juice
  • About 1/4 of an egg white

  • For the syrup:
  • 1/4 tsp loose-leaf Earl Grey tea brewed in 60ml boiling water
  • 25g blackcurrant jam
  • 12g vanilla sugar
  • 15ml apple juice
Directions
  • Step 1 First make the syrup.
  • Step 2 Brew 1/4 tsp of loose Earl Grey tea leaves in 60ml of almost-boiled water for five minutes, then strain out the tea leaves and blend the tea with 25g blackcurrant jam, 12g vanilla sugar and 15ml apple juice.
  • Step 3 Once the jam and sugar have dissolved, strain again, bottle and chill. 
  • Step 4 To make the drink, put everything except the bubbles in a shaker and dry shake, so the egg white sets.
