Green Tea Gimlet
This classic tart gimlet is given a little twist from crisp, refreshing green tea.
- 2 green tea bags
- 1 1/2 cups Tanqueray London Dry Gin, at room temperature
- 3/4 cup freshly squeezed lime juice
- 2 or 3 fluid ounces citrus syrup made with lemon, to taste
- 6 lime wedges, as garnish
Preparation time 60mins
Cooking time 65mins
Pour gin into a 3-cup or larger pitcher. Add the green tea bags and allow it to infuse at room temperature at least an 1 hour.
When ready to serve remove tea bags and add lime juice and citrus syrup; stir until well combined.
Add about 3 1/4 ounces to a cocktail shaker 2/3rds filled with ice. Cover and shake vigorously; strain into an ice filled old-fashioned glass. Squeeze the lime wedge over the drink and drop it in. Repeat to make 6 cocktails total.
