SHAKE first 8 ingredients with ice and strain into ice-filled glass. TOP with cola and briefly stir.
*BEWARE: Although free of cane sugar and beet sugar, this cocktail contains small amounts of sugar from the agave nectar used in the orange liqueur.
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.
