England’s most famous lexicographer would gladly drink up to 25 cups of tea in a single sitting.

Samuel Johnson declared himself ‘a hardened and shameless tea-drinker ... whose kettle has scarcely time to cool; who with tea amuses the evening, with tea solaces the midnight, and, with tea, welcomes the morning.’
IMG_2056_20-12-10_Broken_Clock_Lingering_Vodka_Tea_Cocktail.jpg This fellow, who penned the first English dictionary of its kind, passed onto the library in the sky on this day in 1784.

And in his honour today’s Sunday Brunch creation is a tea-laced tipple to pair with your brunch – or indeed any other meal of the day or night.

Just perhaps partake in a little more moderation than Dr Johnson.


30 ml Broken Clock Vodka
30 ml @fortunellaliqueur
30 ml Strong Black Tea (cold)

Orange peel


Combine the ingredients in a chilled tumbler, add one or two large ice cubes and stir briefly to chill the cocktail and give it a touch of dilution.

Cut a long piece of orange peel, twist it over the surface of the drink to release the essential oils and rub around the rim before placing it into the cocktail.
