This warm number is made to keep you cozy. A twist on a London Fog, it features an Earl Grey tea-infused vodka called Mr. Grey.
I used pear juice, which is a great mixer for cocktails – a little less sweet than its counterpart, apple juice, with a little more mouth feel. The bergamot (oil from the rind of a bergamot orange) in the Earl Grey and the cara cara vinegar give both the alcoholic and non-alcoholic versions of this drink a great warming, tangy orange note.
- 1.5 oz Mr. Grey vodka
¼ oz cara cara balsamic vinegar*
2 oz pear juice (I used Black River)
3 oz boiling water
For the non-alcoholic version:
- 5 oz of strongly brewed Earl Grey tea
2 oz pear juice
¼ oz cara cara balsamic vinegar
Orange twist for garnish
*Cara Cara Orange-Vanilla Balsamic Vinegar is a product of Olivia’s Oils and Vinegars, but any orange balsamic should do the trick.
Bring water to a boil. In a mug, combine Mr. Grey Vodka, pear juice and vinegar and top with boiling water (alcoholic version), or steep Earl Grey tea in boiling water and add pear juice and vinegar. Garnish with an orange twist. Enjoy!
