In This Recipe


  1. For simple syrup: Combine 1 cup sugar and 1 cup water in a saucepan and bring to boil. Add 1 tablespoon of loose earl grey tea, and a few sprigs of lavender if available. Let steep for 20 minutes. Strain, cool, and bottle.
  2. For cocktail: Combine whiskey, syrup, lemon juice, and egg white in a shaker. Forcefully dry shake for ~15 seconds. Fill shaker with ice and shake for another 15 seconds – a beautiful egg cocktail should nearly have a head of froth as opposed to just a small layer on top. Strain into a chilled coupe or cocktail glass.
