The pièce de résistance, though, is a killer martini made with a quick-infused Earl Grey gin. This quintessentially British drink is made by dunking Earl Grey teabags into a bottle of your favorite gin, if you have one, and letting it steep. Room temperature will get the job done quickly, but it is not unreasonable to put this preparation in the freezer overnight. Don't squeeze the teabags — that will just impart a bitter note. Shake your infused gin with a squeeze of lemon and simple syrup, and serve. Or, alternately, make a "dry" preparation with no sweetener and an orange peel garnish.
