    1. Sprinkle the tea leaves over the gin in a small glass and set aside to steep for 2 hours.

    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 4 tablespoons of Earl Grey tea leaves in a glass 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.
