1.5 oz Bluecoat Gin
0.5 oz Earl Grey syrup (recipe here)
0.5 oz lime juice
0.25 oz grenadine
1 tsp creme de violette
2 dashes Rhubarb bitters

Combine all ingredients and shake with ice. Serve up.

NOTES: maybe use slightly less violette. Pretty tasty overall, especially for a gin drink. Would also like to make my own grenadine rather than use bottled. I think it would make a difference. Also possibility: skip grenadine and increase tea syrup. I think I need second opinions on this one.

NOTES 2: Decreased Creme de Violette from 0.25 oz to 1 tsp, and it was better. Also added 2 dashes of Rhubarb Bitters. Changed the overall flavor slightly, but in an interesting way. Updated recipe to reflect.

2 oz Vodka
1 oz Earl Grey syrup (below)
0.5 oz Domaine de Canton
0.5 oz lemon juice

Shake with ice, strain into glass. Served up with a twist of lemon.

Earl Grey Syrup
Soak 1 Earl Grey tea bag in a large glass of hot water for at least 1 hour.
Bring 7 oz of tea to boil in saucepan, and add 4 oz sugar. Simmer for 10 minutes with tea bag in pan. Remove from heat, pass through cheese cloth and bottle. Keeps for a month if refrigerated.

NOTES: Actually pretty nice for a sore throat. Lemon is a tad strong, and Canton is a little underrepresented, but not bad. Liked the idea from Jen for subbing something floral for the canton like Benedictine or St. Germain.
