750 ml bottle (a fifth) of extra dry gin
12 bags English breakfast tea
5 cups lemonade
4 oz. elderflower liqueur
1 cup orange marmalade
lemon slices for garnish


Pour a fifth of gin into a glass container with a lid. Unwrap 12 bags of English breakfast tea, remove the string and tag and drop into the gin. Let the tea bags steep for 3 hours or overnight. Once gin is steeped, strain the mixture into a tea pitcher, discarding used tea bags. Mix 5 cups of cold lemonade into the tea-infused gin. In a separate bowl, measure one cup of orange marmalade and 4 oz. elderflower liqueur. Whisk until smooth. Use a fine mesh strainer to strain marmalade mixture into the pitcher, using a spatula to push as much of the marmalade through as possible, leaving behind only the orange rinds. Stir to combine. Refrigerate. When ready to serve, give the drink a good stir, fill teacups 3/4 full with the gin mixture and top with chilled champagne. Cheers!
