“When I first wrote this recipe, I thought it lacked some­thing. En­ter one of my favourite cock­tail in­gre­di­ents: tea,” says Byrne. “When used cor­rectly, tea can bring amaz­ing sub­tlety to cock­tails and punch; it gives them some back­bone, al­low­ing other flavours to pop. Once I added the tea, the Coc­chi rosa stood out and you could re­ally no­tice the bit­ter cin­chona bark of the La Tonique quin­quina. Very quickly, this punch went to su­per­star sta­tus.”
