Fairtrade Fix Cocktail

Tea is of one of my favourite drinks during a work day, so it make sense to turn a beautiful tea blend into an incredible cocktail! Organic tea company Nature’s Cuppa joined with award winning cocktail bar Eau de Vie to create a number of delicious cocktails we’ll be sharing over the next few weeks.

Today’s fresh brew, the “Fairtrade Fix” features a classic earl grey tea with a Summery mix of gin, citrus and plenty of mint. I love the thought of this at an afternoon wedding!


60ml Gin
30ml Fresh lime juice
20ml Sugar syrup (1:1 water : sugar, dissolve sugar in warm water)
8 Mint leaves
60ml Nature’s Cuppa Earl Grey (brewed stronger than regular and chilled in fridge)
1 Scoop lemon sorbet

Add the gin, Nature’s Cuppa Earl Grey tea, lime juice, sugar syrup, sorbet and mint to a tall glass and churn together with a spoon.

Following this fill the glass with crushed ice and build until the glass is full.

Garnish with lemon slices and a mint sprig.
