Earl Grey Martini

Mr. Grey was no slouch. As a matter of fact, he was quite the ladies man. He had his fair share of Victorian beauties and married the loveliest thing in a corset, petticoats, hoops and a bodice, one Elizabeth Ponsonby. This is a man who fathered 6 daughters on the up and up, 1 on the down low, a 10 count of sons and was instrumental in the abolition of slavery in the British Empire. (Take note, David, being involved in positive social and political reform will get you some serious play.)

I think this man deserves some glass raising, don’t you?


1 part Earl Grey Tea
3 parts chilled vodka or gin
A squeeze of orange

Brew the tea like a proper gentleman, then cool. Pour the tea and the vodka over ice. Shake gently, strain into crystal and garnish with an orange twist and a fresh cherry. Keep your chin up and be gay!
