THE PASSIONATE EARL

Earthy and fruity, ready for spring.

This cocktail personifies a lot of the nostalgia of the spring season for me. Spring gardens, relaxing evenings with loved ones, and a diverse range of stories. The Passionate Earl brings those flavors home with an earthy yet fruity vibe that's complex, new, but welcoming.

 

The celebrity here is the relationship between the passionfruit and the Earl Grey. Two ingredients you wouldn't expect to play together well but absolutely make a lasting impression.

THE PASSIONATE EARL

Ingredients

  • ½ oz. Earl Gray infused gin*

  • ½ oz. St. Germain
