Earl Greay Fizz Cocktail with Jammy Dodger!


Recipe of the month with Lloyd Brown of Bridport’s Venner Bar

In the Venner Bar we’re pretty much fuelled by tea so it’s no coincidence that it ends up in a lot of our cocktails, be it our Chai-Fidelity, a flaming absinthe laced Tiki Chai or this, our Earl Grey Gin Fizz. We came up with it for one of our monthly tasting sessions, this one being for Boxer gin - a new eco-friendly gin that boasts wild juniper and bold bergamot; the bergamot led to Earl Grey and so this drink was created. To make the Earl Grey gin, get hold of some quality tea, we use The Gilded Teapot in Dorchester, their Persian Earl Grey works perfectly in this cocktail. Add one tablespoon of the tea to a teapot and then top with Boxer gin, stir and leave to sit for half an hour and strain.



• 50ml Earl Grey infused Boxer gin

• 25ml Fresh lemon juice

• 15ml Sugar syrup (2 sugar: 1 water)

• One fresh egg white

• Dash teapot bitters made from black tea (available from


Combine all the ingredients in a shaker and shake without ice or whisk till frothy, then shake with ice before straining into a coupette or tea cup. Garnish with a candied lemon wedge or a Jammy Dodger!


The Venner Bar is open Wednesday to Saturday 5pm to late. To book a table contact Lloyd or call 01308 422 878
