Inspired by classic Italian flavours & pairings - the Maxtra-Zeneca presents sophisticated, full-bodied flavours to the front of the palate, with a remarkably light and silky finish. Often perceived as sacrilegious, the mixing of tea & coffee offers theories providing health benefits. This medicinal combination (+ current affairs) inspired the name of the cocktail.

This cocktail is batched, milk-clarified & garnished with a grapefruit wedge, soaked in maraschino syrup and later dehydrated.

    I had a lot more to add to the drink description, but ran out of characters.
    Mr Black and Cherry Heering is a dream combination. White rum adds body and depth. Hopped Grapefruit Bitters adds some intricacy, while the maraschino syrup adds a subtle sweetness. The dilution with chamomile tea makes the Maxtra-Zeneca drink like a refreshing iced tea.
