Never too Earl-y for this cocktail. The bright floral flavors of the Earl Grey simple syrup will wake up taste buds while you find your afternoon buzz sipping on this drink.
To make simple syrup, heat 1 cup water and 1 cup sugar together over medium heat in sauce pan. Whisk, and allow sugar to dissolve fully into water, then remove from heat.
Place 4 bags of Earl Grey tea into sauce pan with sugar water and allow tea to steep for 5-10 minutes.
Remove bags and transfer simple syrup into container of choice.
To assemble cocktail, add ice, Earl Grey simple syrup, gin, and fresh lemon cocktail shaker. Shake vigorously and strain into champagne glass. Top with prosecco and garnish with lemon spiral.
