  • 1 teaspoon Earl Grey tea leaves
  • 2 ounces hot water
  • 1 orange slice large
  • 1 teaspoon Vanilla Bean Sugar*
  • 1 ounce Blackberry Shrub with Vanilla and Earl Grey*
  • Soda water to top or to taste I used Fever-Tree Club Soda


  1. Brew the tea and set aside.*
  2. Place some ice in a rocks glass or similar sized glass.
  3. In a cocktail shaker, muddle the orange slice and sugar together until the sugar is mostly dissolved and the orange has been flattened and released its juices.
  4. Add the tea and shrub and top with ice.
  5. Shake well, until the shaker is very cold and is sweating.
  6. Strain into the prepared glass, top with club soda and garnish. You can garnish with an orange wedge or slice and edible flowers if desired.

Recipe Notes

For black tea, brew 2 to 3 minutes. You can also use 2 ounces of pre-brewed Earl Grey tea. If you’re using pre-brewed tea, make sure it’s double strength (double the amount of tea bags or tea leaves for the same amount of water you would use to brew hot tea).
