Notes
• INFUSED GIN: add 2 tbsp loose leaf Earl Grey tea to 8oz Gin and it let set for 2 hours covered at room temperature. Filter into another container for use later. (We used Plymouth Gin and Flowery Earl Grey loose leaf tea from Harrods in London. If you use this same tea, make sure to tell everyone where you got it – everyone wants to hear that story again.)
• SIMPLE SYRUP: mix 1 cup sugar and 1 cup water in a saucepan over medium heat. Bring to a boil and stir until sugar is dissolved. Remove from heat and let cool. Pour into a glass jar and cover. Makes about 1½ cups and will keep in the refrigerator for a few months.
• ICE CUBES: chip pieces off an iceberg from your transatlantic ocean liner voyage and form into cube-like shapes, approximately 1 to 1.5 inches. Keep below 32°F (0°C) until ready to prepare this cocktail.
