Twelve Days of Cocktails - Day 5: Earl Grey Fizz


I have a confession to make.

Today's drink is not strictly for the holidays.  You can serve it at Christmas cocktails, a spring bridal shower, a chic summer gathering, or as an aperitif in autumn.  Anytime you want something bubbly and a bit special, Earl Grey Fizz fits the bill.  In fact, I'm hard-pressed to think of a gathering where it's not appropriate. 

Earl Grey Fizz

Shake 1 oz vodka and 1 oz Earl Grey Tea syrup* on ice.  Strain into a chilled champagne flute.  Top with a dry (not sweet!) sparkling wine and garnish with a lemon twist.

*Make 1 cup of Earl Grey tea (use 2 teabags). Add 2 cups of sugar to make syrup, and let cool.

For a non-alcoholic version:
Omit vodka and substitute sparkling wine for sparkling cider or a non-alcoholic sparkling brut.
