This rum mocktail blends the floral and distinct citrus profile of Earl Grey tea with the layered and complex notes of Ovant Royal, a non-alcoholic dark spirit that synchronises the sweetness of rum and the smokiness of whisky. Lemon juice further enhances the citrus notes, and the fresh aromatics of the mint and basil syrup add a delightful complexity. The medley of flavours in this refreshing mocktail create a sophisticated taste with a slightly sweet finish. For the best experience, top with crushed ice and garnish with mint.
