This was wonderful! I prefer vodka, so I used that but I'll try the gin soon. I didn't want to wait the 2 hours, so I microwaved the vodka for 40 secs (boiling at that point) and steeped the tea bag for 5 minutes. I cooled the "tea" in an ice bath for about 15 minutes, until it was room temp. Otherwise, I did everything as the recipe dictated. I tried using a little less syrup, as another user suggested, but I ended up needing the full amount to cut the tartness of the lemon. I also used raw sugar instead of white sugar because I think it looks better! I gave it 4 stars because there is no way this makes 2 servings. This barely filled a martini glass and only has 3 ounces of alcohol (the equivalent of 1 regular martini).
