"Darjeeling tea is considered the Champagne of teas, with an extremely light and floral aroma,” explains William. “This works well with the balance of citrus and spice in the classic gimlet cocktail to produce a particularly delicate and aromatic take on this drink."

Shake all ingredients vigorously but briefly, packing in as much ice as will fit into the shaker.
Pour into a martini or similar glass and serve. Garnish with lime peel if you're feeling fancy.
At Merchant House bar in London, founders Lewis Hayes and Nate Brown have departed from the traditional gimlet recipe even more.
