The Weekly Cocktail Recipe: Sopwell House’s ‘G&Tea’

World Gin Day takes place this weekend (Saturday 10th June), providing plenty of reasons to enjoy a drink (or twelve) containing the nation’s favourite spirit.

In turn, Sopwell House – a Georgian manor house hotel in St. Albans – has fused two of the nation’s favourite drinks: tea and gin, in their ‘G&Tea’ cocktail. Created by the bar’s mixologists, the drink combines Bathtub gin with cooled Earl Grey tea and grapefruit juice for a ‘sophisticated twist’. So with World Gin Day just around the corner, Sopwell House Restaurant and Bars Manager, Stefano Litti, has shared the recipe of one of the hotel’s most popular cocktails, ideal to taste at home this weekend.


40ml Bathtub Gin

20ml Earl Grey Tea (cooled)

20ml Grapefruit Juice


Add the gin, cooled tea and grapefruit juice to a cocktail shaker.

Shake and serve over ice in a highball glass.
