The Earl Grey cocktail

Earl Grey cocktail


A great summer cocktail as made by Aberdeen mixologist, Alex Garrow!

Infuse the teabag in the gin for 1 minute. Discard the teabag.

Put the flavoured gin in a cocktail shaker with the lemon juice and honey. Shake well.

Strain into a flute and top up with champagne. Garnish with the lemon zest if using. Enjoy!

Black pearl


  • 180ml vodka
  • 2 cups/500ml tangerine juice
  • 120ml lime juice
  • 120ml creme de cassis
  • 1 bottle champagne or other dry fizz
  • lime slices and blackberries for garnish


Apparently this cocktail is “eminently appropriate for any time of the day”!

Combine the tangerine juice, lime juice and vodka in a jug. Mix well.

Fill 6 tumblers with ice cubes and pour over a splash of cassis. Fill the tumblers three-quarters full with the vodka and juice mixture and then top with champagne. Garnish with lime and berries.
