* BEWARE: Although free of cane sugar and beet sugar, this cocktail contains small amounts of fructose sugars from the agave nectar used in the Agave Sec orange liqueur as well as natural sugars in the lime and lemon juice.

As the cola falls and bleeds its way through the otherwise clear drink (it takes noticeably long to fall than full sugar cola), it does end up looking remarkably like week black tea and indeed the taste isn't so far removed from spirit laced weak tea with citrus fruit.


Adapted from the classic serve by yours truly (Simon Difford) in January 2019.
