Rodrick’s Rollick Punch


A wonderful book designer named Stefan Psalter taught us to love a good punch – and his concoctions were wonderfully boozy. This version carries on the tradition but with such great nuanced flavors. It is perfect for entertaining summer or winter. The cucumber hints in the gin enhanced by the chamomile, Big O, pomegranate, lemon and Angostura create a rich, botanical drink that will bring your guests back for more.



  • 10 parts Hendrick’s Gin
  • 10 parts pomegranate soda
  • 10 parts strengthened chamomile tea
  • 3½ parts fresh lemon juice
  • 3 handfuls (or parts) of dried cranberries
  • 3 parts Big O Ginger Liqueur
  • Liberal amounts of Angostura bitters
  • 1 litre frozen water
  • Garnish: cucumber wheels, clove spiked orange wheels and pomegranate segments if in season.


  1. Steep 2 bags of tea per cup hot water for 45 minutes and chill.
  2. In a big punch bowl add cranberries and Big O and muddle to mix the liqueur and the cranberries together.
  3. Stir in the lemon juice.
  4. Add an ice ring or over-large ice cubes, along with the Hendrick’s Gin and tea.
  5. Add pomegranate soda and bitters.
  6. Give a goodly stir. Adjust the taste with more bitters, more Big O, or more Hendrick’s Gin.
  7. Garnish and promptly serve.
