'Alo 2010...

Happy New Year to you all! I love the start of a year, a fresh canvas ready for some nice bold brush strokes.

Having overdone it all, and I mean all, over the silly season, I am going to post one of the simplest recipes I have. A slight twist on classic lemonade, with a dash of rum because going tee total in January would just be too much of a shock to the system.

Mix it up, add some ice, and enjoy in the sunshine!

1L water

2 teaspoons tealeaves

100g sugar

juice of 4 oranges

juice of 2 lemons

zest of 1 orange and 1 lemon

100ml rum

  • Boil 250ml of the water with the tea leaves and sugar; allow to sit for 10-15 minutes. Strain and pour into a large jug.
  • Mix the orange and lemon juice with the zest and stir in the rum and the remainder of the water (750ml).
  • Add to the tea mixture and stir well. Add enough ice cubes to chill – not too many as you wouldn’t want to tame the rum kick too much… ;)
  • Wearing your hat, and your red toenails dipped in the pool, sip and enjoy the start to a new year.
