Arrack – made from the sap of coconut flowers – is one of the oldest spirits in the world, and Ceylon arrack is a particularly fine example. It tastes a little like tequila, only lighter, with deliciously nutty hints.

We use a green Darjeeling tea, brewed reasonably strong, along with the bay leaves. This can be a tricky tea to find, but first flush Darjeeling is a fine substitute.
