Friendship Vase

A perfect party drink that can be prepared well in advance, as the name suggests, great to share with friends.



  • Peel of 2 lemons
  • 4 full bar spoons of sugar
  • 300ml Rutte Old Simon Genever Gin
  • 60ml Maraschino
  • 400ml Earl Grey tea
  • 90ml lemon juice


Muddle the peels with the sugar in a bowl large enough to take all the ingredients, add the rest of the ingredients and stir. Cover and leave to rest for at least half an hour. Strain into a clean bottle and chill. When ready to serve pour into a punch bowl, add ice and slices of lemon and lime and fresh mint leaves to give extra flavour and colour.
