A London Delicacy Turned Russian.

Tea-flavored vodkas are booming in popularity, and now, you can make your own. With this recipe, we use the strong herbal presence from Earl Grey tea and dilution to create homemade Earl Grey vodka.


To get started, you’ll need: 6 oz. Everclear®, 7 oz. purified water, and ¼ cup Earl Grey tea.


Once you have all your ingredients in order, mix the Earl Grey tea, Everclear® and water in a sealable, quart-sized container.



Once blended, seal and let steep from 30 to 90 minutes. Taste test every half hour to ensure it’s infused to your liking.

After the initial infusion is finished, remove the Earl Grey tea.

Once fully blended, your Earl Grey Vodka is ready to bottle. Store in a cool, dark place, and enjoy.
