Ask Ashe G and T recipe

INGREDIENTS:

2TBSP  Tetley Lemon flavoured black tea
1Jar    A jar with a tight lid
2cups    Gin (clear with fewer botanicals is best such as Bombay Sapphire Original)

TO SERVE:

½ cup    Lemon juice
2 TBSP    Simple syrup**
4 cups    Ginger ale

METHOD:

  1. Add 2 cups of gin to the jar.
  2. Open the Tetley Lemon flavoured black teabags and measure out 2 TBSP of dry tea leaves, add to the gin and seal the jar for at least a week*.
  3. When you’re ready to use it, use a fine sieve to strain the tea leaves from the gin and pour into a glass bottle – unless you’re going to make a big jug immediately.
  4. **To make simple syrup, boil 1 cup of white sugar with 1 cup of water, stirring occasionally until the sugar has dissolved. Combine the gin infusion, lemon juice, simple syrup and lots of ice in a jug and stir, then add the ginger ale and stir gently
  5. Serve immediately. Serves 6

*Note:  The longer you leave it, the stronger the tea flavour will be
