We imagined sitting on a tropical beach with a fruit basket of pineapples and mangos being served or later on in the day a glass of Hurricane Party punch (orange, pineapple, lime and grenadine juice with plenty of rum). On the palate neat it was more of a ‘Zombie’ which had plenty of Szechuan pepper thrown into the mix. After dilution we were however back enjoying plenty of sweet fruity aromas which now turned into oranges, cherries and apples. To taste, very different compared to neat, bitter sweet Seville orange marmalade, ginger biscuits and a yoghurt pomegranate dessert with honey.
