EXCELLENT! Taste just like the "T' Martini at Bellagio. The only issue I had is that it makes either one decent sized martini or two tiny martinis. Either way it is delicious and easy peasy to make. Like others I steeped a earl grey tea bag instead of loose leaves. Thanks so much for sharing!
This drink is amazing! I first had it at the Encore hotel in Las Vegas at one of their bars--it was their signature drink. I fell in love with it and had to replicate it at home. And this is it! I use vodka instead of gin (that is just my preference) and couldn't be happier.
These martinis are great! It does take some time to steep the tea in the gin but the recipe is otherwise so simple and inexpensive. There's no need to spring for an expensive brand of Earl Grey- I used the generic supermarket brand (less than 2 for a box) left it in the bags while it brewed and it still turned out perfect. I'm looking forward to serving them at my holiday party this weekend!
This was wonderful! I prefer vodka so I used that but I'll try the gin soon. I didn't want to wait the 2 hours so I microwaved the vodka for 40 secs (boiling at that point) and steeped the tea bag for 5 minutes. I cooled the "tea" in an ice bath for about 15 minutes until it was room temp. Otherwise I did everything as the recipe dictated. I tried using a little less syrup as another user suggested but I ended up needing the full amount to cut the tartness of the lemon. I also used raw sugar instead of white sugar because I think it looks better! I gave it 4 stars because there is no way this makes 2 servings. This barely filled a martini glass and only has 3 ounces of alcohol (the equivalent of 1 regular martini).
