In our never-ending search for ways to warm in the long Canadian winter we recreated a British Army classic, The Gunfire, in true colonial style.  Tea, hot and black, a shot of Quebec's own Chic Choc Spiced Rum and a twist, we call it - The Boral Gunfire.

Serves: 1 drink
Ingredients
  • 1 cup strong, brewed black tea (like Darjeeling)
  • 1 shot Chic Choc Spiced Rum
Method
  1. Rub the rim of the mug with a twist of lemon zest, then splash it in.
  2. Stir and sip. Or toss it straight back and make yourself another soldier.
  3. It's cold out there. You're in good company. Add sugar if you're feeling particularly woosey.
Notes
The things I do for a photo. Trudging through snow with rum and props, in a snow flurry. A little behind-the-scenes glimpse on this shoot at Food Gypsy World Headquarters (I.e: the backyard, in Quebec. Fitting, non?!).
