(Low) sugar, spice and everything nice

pukka love tea cocktail

Not the red roses and stuffed teddy bear type? Then you might prefer this alternative Valentine’s treat, a delicious tea-based cocktail from Pukka managing director Sebastian Pole’s new book, Cleanse Nurture Restore (£19.99, Frances Lincoln).

Makes 3*
Pukka Herbs’ Love tea – three teabags
Pomegranate juice 50ml/2 shots per glass
Rose water (optional) 1 tsp per glass
Fresh rose petal (optional) 1 per glass
Champagne (enough to top each glass)

1 Cover the tea bags with 250ml boiling water. Leave to infuse for 30 minutes in a covered container. Strain to make love tea essences, then put in the fridge for two hours.
2 Take 25ml Love tea essence and 25ml pomegranate juice.
3 Top up with prosecco
4 Add some rosewater if you would like
5 Finish off by adding a fresh rose petal. Et voila!

*Just in case you are considering a ménage à trois
