Simple Syrup 1 wedge lemon white sugar for rimming Directions 1. Sprinkle the tea leaves over the gin in a small glass, and set aside to steep for 2 hours. 2.

Infusing Tip To make it easier, the Earl Grey infused gin can be made in a large quantity ahead of time. To infuse the gin, pour 1 litre of gin over 1/4 cup of Earl Grey tea leaves in a glass or metal bowl, and allow to steep for 2 hours. Afterwards, strain the gin back into its bottle. Do not press the tea leaves to extract excess gin - this can make the infusion bitter. Make your own Simple Syrup Mix equal parts white sugar with boiling water and stir until all sugar has dissolved. Set aside and allow to cool.
