    Sounds easy to prepare! Must try!  -  01 Jun 2012


    Absolutely amazing!!! Earl Grey tea bags work just fine and don't require any straining. I used one in lieu of each teaspoon of loose leaves. This is perhaps the best cocktail I've ever had!  -  04 Jan 2011  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    EXCELLENT! Taste just like the "T' Martini at Bellagio. The only issue I had is that it makes either one decent sized martini or two tiny martinis. Either way it is delicious and easy peasy to make. Like others, I steeped a earl grey tea bag instead of loose leaves. Thanks so much for sharing!  -  13 Aug 2012  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
