The Poisoned Earl (Recipe)

this is maybe the only one i actually have a photo of, because i made it up well after i had stopped working at a bar and actually bothered to take the time to pose it. it’s very boozy and fairly sharp so it’s definitely not for everyone, but i like it as a kind of aggressive aperitif.

The Poisoned Earl
1 sugar cube
3 dashes Angostura bitters


¼ oz. double-strength Earl Grey tea (cold)
1 oz. grappa
1 ¼ oz. gin

[stir with ice]

Strain into a double old-fashioned glass
Garnish with a dried lemon wheel/slice

if it’s too sharp, add a big fancy hand-cut ice cube.
