Madame's Choice

Tea time takes on a whole new meaning with Madame’s Choice, an Earl Gray based cocktail featuring gin, lemon juice, and sage-infused honey. This may just be your new favorite remedy if you’ve fallen ill, though we’re not sure your general physician would approve. This cocktail is served at Le Grande in New York’s Time Hotel.
