Lady Persephone Cocktail

by Kate Alvarez

(I have named it thus because Persephone had to stay in the underworld with Hades for as many months as she had eaten pomegranate seeds! And it connects to the theme of the Big Bang because the constellation Virgo represents Persephone)

 

2 ounces gin

1 ounce pure pomegranate juice

1/2 ounce fresh lemon juice

1/2 ounce Earl Grey tea syrup (recipe follows)

1 egg white

 

In a cocktail shaker, dry shake all ingredients (including egg white) until combined. Then add a handful of ice and shake again about 30 seconds. Pour into a coupe or martini glass. Garnish with lemon peel, tea leaves, and pomegranate arils.

 

Earl Grey tea syrup:

 

1.5 cups water

4 Earl Grey tea bags

1 cup sugar

 

Boil the water and then remove from heat and steep the tea bags about 4-5 minutes. Remove teabags and then add the sugar, and return to heat. Heat to a low boil for about 10 minutes or until concentrated. Cool and set aside until ready to use.
