Rockytop Tea- @Vodka14

Rockytop Tea:

1.5 oz earl gray infused vodka* (Vodka 14)
.5 oz blood orange juice
.5 oz lemon juice
1 tbsp Rangpur lime marmalade (homemade)
*1 tbsp Earl Gray infused in 8 oz vodka for 12-18 hours

Vodka 14 is a high quality classic organic vodka from Colorado. We thought it would be an excellent canvas to infuse with a nice Earl Gray tea. The orange juice acts to extend the cocktail a bit with the lemon juice lending balance and the requisite acidity. The bitter-sweetness of the marmalade goes very well with the Earl Gray, and helps to tame the tannic finish. 



1.5 oz Herradura Anejo Tequila
.5 oz lime juice
1 Tbsp. Rangpur lime marmalade
Dash grenadine (homemade)

Shake over ice. Double strain into chilled cocktail glass. Garnish with small citrus fruit (mandarin-kumquat hybrid used here)

Marmalade recipe loosely based on David Lebovitz Seville orange marmalade here.
