Author and former Gramercy Tavern managing partner Nick Mautone, likes to serve this drink as a summer refresher over ice in a tall glass. But we think it’s strong enough to use as a party punch and serve in 2-ounce portions over ice.

Game plan: The tea, sake, rum, and syrup can be combined ahead of time and kept covered in the refrigerator. Prior to serving, add ice and stir.
