“Conversation Starter” Tea: An Earl Grey Cocktail

“Conversation Starter” Tea: An Earl Grey Cocktail

When I’m enjoying a cup of Earl Grey tea, I tend to go for a London fog (e.g. Earl Grey latte).  But did you know that Earl Grey makes a fabulous cocktail base?  Much better than those sugary, preservative-laden cocktail syrups.

Try this easy-peasy Earl Grey cocktail recipe that is just perfect for a dinner party arrival drink — hence the name, Conversation Starter cocktail.
