Add all ingredients to a shaker and shake until well-chilled. Strain into a chilled Nick & Nora (or coupe) glass. Express the orange peel onto the surface of the drink, twist, and place on the edge of the glass.
Steep 1 tsp of loose leaf Lapsang souchong tea in two ounces of water for 3 minutes. Drain the water and transfer the wet leaves to a glass or nonprorous, nonreactive container and add 1 cup of vodka.
Steep the leaves in the vodka at room temperature for 7 minutes. Drain and discard the leaves. Strain into a clean jar. Store in a cool, dark place. The infused vodka will keep indefinitely.
Combine honey and boiling water in a heatproof glass jar. Stir until honey is dissolved. Cool to room temperature before using. Honey syrup will keep refrigerated in an airtight container for 2 weeks.
