Serves 10 Prep Time 30 Minutes
1 cup sugar

4 tea bags (we love Dilmah English Breakfast Tea)
2 cups boiling water
500ml Barker’s Orange & Bitters concentrate
500ml Barker’s Lemon syrup
1 1/2 cups gin (we love Rogue Society)
2L soda water
Pour the 7 cups of water into a large saucepan and bring to boil.
Add sugar and stir until dissolved; set aside to cool.
Place the 4 teabags in the 2 cups of boiling water and let steep 3-4 minutes, then remove the tea bags.
In a large bowl mix together sugar water mix, tea, Barkers mixes and then stir in the gin.
To serve, place ladels of the cocktail mix into a tall glass and fill with soda water.
