12 Drinks of Christmas: Drunk Actually

Welcome to Bottom Shelf Mixology!  Our staff of Mixologists have racked their brains (and livers) to come up with special "bottom shelf" versions of popular drinks, and some original creations that range from "oh, that might be interesting" to "that sounds absolutely disgusting".  

Christmas is in less than a week, and our twisted advent calendar is going to pick up the pace a bit (thanks to falling behind due to Star Wars and the general business of the season).

Our sixth drink is named after a Christmas based British romantic comedy: Love Actually.

Drink 6: Drunk Actually
  • 1 bag Aldi Diplomat Earl Grey Tea
  • 6 oz Robinson's Lemon Barley Water
  • 2 oz Beefeater Gin 
Start by heating the lemon barley water.  Brew the tea in the barley water as per directions.

After brewing the tea, stir in the gin and serve warm.

This goes perfect with some spotted dick!
