Calm before the storm cocktail

This classic has the calming effect from Lavender, but energized slightly by the caffeine in the Earl Grey tea leaves. 

In a cup, place 5 oz of room temperature water. You will only use 4 oz for the tea base in this recipe, so may be extra left over. Feel free to sip any leftovers!

Place the loose leaf tea linen or tea ball. Brew in the room temperature water for 10 minutes, agitating from time to time. Remove the sachet/ball.

In a shaker, combine 4 oz of the tea base, the vodka, and elderflower liqueur. Dry-Shake gently. Strain an pour into a glass over ice. Swirl gently to chill. Garnish with the lemon slice
