Lavender Gin Fizz

Mattew Kelly / Supercall

This garden-inspired take on a Gin Fizz features the delicate, floral flavors of Earl Grey tea and the heady perfume of lavender bitters. London Dry gin provides the drink with an herbaceous backbone, while a creamy head of egg white foam lightens and brightens. It is the perfect accompaniment to crumpets at your next high tea.
