Recipe by Stephen Shafer

This is Audrey Saunders' original recipe, including the whimsical spelling for the drink. Other versions are available, but the ingredients are fairly standard in all of them. The recommended brand of gin frequently varies, but is usually a quality label like Tanqueray, Beefeaters, Bombay Sapphire or Boodles, all of which are known for smoothness and high proofs.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 34 ounce fresh lemon juice
  • 1 ounce simple syrup (1 ( 1 sugar-to-water ratio)
  • 1 12 ounces earl grey tea-infused gin
  • 1 egg white
  • lemon twist (to garnish)
  • coarse sugar, to rim the glass

Directions

  1. Instructions.
  2. Moisten the rim of a chilled martini glass with lemon juice and turn it upside down in a saucer of coarse sugar to rim the glass.
  3. Place the lemon juice, simple syrup, infused gin and egg white into a lidded glass or cocktail shaker, add a few cubes of ice and shake vigorously for ten to fifteen seconds.
  4. Strain into the prepared glass and garnish with the lemon twist.
  5. Green Tea-Infused Gin.
  6. One 750 ml bottle of Tanqueray gin (Feel free to substitute your own favorite gin.).
  7. 4 tablespoons loose Earl Grey tea leaves.
  8. Carefully measure the tea leaves and feed them through the neck of the gin bottle.
  9. Cap the bottle and shake to mix.
  10. Let the gin sit at room temperature for a minimum of two hours.
  11. Strain the gin to remove the tea leaves, thoroughly rinse the bottle to remove the tea debris and pour the infused gin back into the bottle.
  12. The infusion will last indefinitely if kept refrigerated.
  13. Note: If you are squeamish about consuming raw egg whites, eliminate them from the recipe. They add a nice visual touch, but they do not affect the flavor of the cocktail.
