The gin by itself is delicious. The Earl Grey flavour is faint, but it certainly gives it a little more depth to a G&T!
In the end, I made two different drinks using the gin, so thought I may as well share them both here!
Citrus Gin Fizz (makes two)
In a cocktail shaker, combine 50ml gin with 25ml triple sec, or any other orange liquor (such as Cointreau.) Shake with ice.
Strain the mix into two flutes and top with Prosecco. Garnish with a lemon twist.
Raspberry G&T (makes one)
In a cocktail shaker, combine 5 raspberries with 50ml gin and 25ml elderflower cordial. Shake with ice.
Strain into a glass with ice, top with tonic water and garnish with a few more raspberries and a straw.
I really enjoyed mixing up these drinks this afternoon, and I definitely want to do it more often. You can have a look at Waitrose's Summer Cocktail recipes here!
Thank you Waitrose Cellar for the challenge!
