Thirsty Thursdays: Sunshine-tini

May 16, 2013

Sunshine-tini is a cocktail that epitomizes the beginning of summer.  Ice cold vodka is shaken with lemon juice and syrup until combined.  It is simple but delicious.  This is the perfect cocktail to sip on during Memorial day.

The Sunshine-tini
2 oz Belvedere Lemon Tea
1/2 oz Lemon juice
1/4 oz Earl Grey and black pepper syrup
Shake with ice and strain into a chilled cocktail glass. Garnish with lemon twist.
For syrup, boil equal parts water and sugar.  Once the sugar as dissolved, steep a bag of Earl Grey tea and 4-6 whole peppercorns for 10 minutes.
