Gin, Lavender bitters, Ginger beer, Lime, Bergamot orange
Build in a highball over ice. Squeeze the lime wedge and drop it in. Give a quick stir and serve. Earl Grey Gin: steep a bag of Earl Grey tea in one cup of gin until infused to your taste, then strain. Note: blanching tea before infusing it removes many of the harsh tannins.
Named for Victorian novelist Edward Bulter-Lytton, author of the phrase "It was a dark and stormy night" and namesake of a contest for worst opening line. A British take on the Dark 'n' Stormy. Also good with spruce beer subbing for ginger beer.

Surprisingly floral and (unsurprisingly) citrus-y, with an almost jasmine tea character. The flavors blend together in a lovely way. Experiment with Earl Grey gin in other recipes
