This recipe is for kids to the grandparents. Its got depth, its dark and fragrant as Christmas nights and makes room for your additions (see suggestions below)
220ml filtered water
2/3 teaspoon of Dark Romance; Ceylon black tea, cocoa, liquorice
100ml lime juice
100ml tangerine/clementine juice
200ml rum/your local liquor (adjust if using less)
200ml grapefruit juice and zest
200ml orange juice and zest
Make a tea syrup with water, sugar and Dark Romance: place all the ingredients in a pan and simmer until the sugar has dissolved. Leave to cool and strain.
Once cool, mix with other ingredients and mix well. At this stage you can leave the rum out. Chill thoroughly and divide the punch if you are making some for those not wanting alcohol.
Fill a glass with the punch, top with ice cubes and pour over some grenadine or some bitters or your local tipple ….to top up!
