For a scaled recipe yielding just over 2 cups of punsch:

6.5 oz strong tea
7.5 oz sugar (one tbs less than a cup)
2.5 oz Batavia Arrack
7 oz 40% vodka (or other spirit)
lemon juice to taste

The order of ingredients was changed to reflect order of use and the quantities were adjusted for easier measure.

The scaled metric version yielding about 1/2 L:

1,8 dl strong tea
2,25 dl sugar
0,7 dl Batavia Arrack
2 dl 40% vodka
lemon juice to taste

My apologies if the quantities are hard to measure, as I'm not familiar with bar tools in Europe.

The Wray & Nephew overproof is 63%, if memory serves, so you'd have to use about:

1,25 dl W&N
0,75 dl water

to avoid raising the strength of the punsch.

We want to try Dr. Cocktail's Doctor Cocktail recipe:

2 oz (6 cl) Jamaican Rum
1 oz (3 cl) Swedish Punsch
1 oz (3 cl) lime juice

Shake in an iced cocktail shaker and strain into a cocktail glass. Garnish with a lime twist.

It is actually a Trader Vic variation, but Dr. Cocktail's selections (aside from some odd quantities at times, easily remedied) are often delectable.
