GSN Original Cocktail: Captain Grey

Now that the temperatures are dropping here in Central New York, it’s time to start thinking about warming drinks. Taking inspiration from the classic whiskey-based Hot Toddy, the Captain Grey uses spiced rum to add sweetness and complexity. This is the perfect after dinner drink to enjoy in front of a fireplace.

Captain Grey
4 oz piping hot organic Earl Grey tea
1.5 oz Captain Morgan Spiced Rum
0.25 oz fresh squeezed lemon juice
1/2 tsp organic honey

Pre-warm a cognac glass with warm to hot water. Steep Earl Grey tea for 3-5 minutes in a mug with water just off the boil. Empty cognac glass, then add tea, rum, lemon juice and honey. Gently stir and garnish with a lemon wheel if desired.
