Festive fruity tea for Christmas.
Winter has arrived. There’s snow in Stirling, hail in Harrow and drizzle in Devon. Time to fill up the punch bowl!
Add a splash of Caribbean sunshine to the dark nights with this fabulous, festive, Jamaican inspired fruit infusion.
Brewing the best cup. One heaped teaspoon per cup. Freshly boiling water, brew your tea for at least 5 minutes, a little honey or sugar and without milk.
6 Heaped teaspoons Rum Punch Infusion
800 ml Fruit Juice
800 ml Ginger Beer
Pour 300ml water ( about a large mug ) over six heaped teaspoons of Rum Punch Infusion in a saucepan, bring to the boil, then reduce the heat and add your fruit juice, orange or pineapple is good. Then add the ginger beer and however much dark rum you fancy, 200ml or so. Simmer but not boil for about five minutes, strain into mugs. Garnish with slices of orange or a cinnamon stick if you are feeling super festive.
