September 20th is National Punch Day and we here at Caribbean Trading Company are celebrating by mixing up a yummy Caribbean Punch to enjoy with Sunday Brunch this weekend. Caribbean means Rum and so we are planning a pretty basic rum punch drink that is sure to please…. Rum and lime are a great flavor combination.
Captain Tim’s Caribbean Punch
2 oz. Rum – light
½ ox. Lime Juice
3 tsp. Simple Syrup
2-3 dashes Angostura Bitters
3 or 4 ice cubes
Lime Slices (garnish)
Combine the rum, lime juice, simple syrup, bitters and ice in a cocktail shaker and shake. Strain over ice cubes in a small tumbler. Serves 1
** You can add grated nutmeg or some mint to this recipe to spice it up a bit. We will be providing both nutmeg and mint as options with our Rum Punch. Garnish with Lime Slices.
Serve this drink with a delicious rum cake to add a sweet ending to this meal. Click here to shop for authentic Caribbean rum cakes today.
