Sip of the Month: Jamaican Rum Punch

Sip of the Month: Jamaican Rum Punch
Every hour is happy when you're drinking Jamaican rum punch! 

The classic recipe has been passed on by generation after generation with a rhyme: “One of sour, two of sweet, three of strong, four of weak.” 
The following recipe is from New York's popular Jamaican restaurant Miss Lily’s 7A

Jamaican Rum Punch
Serves 1


1 to 1 ½ ounces overproof rum, Wray & Nephew if possible
1 ½  ounce fresh-squeezed orange juice
1 ½ ounce cranberry juice
1 ½ ounce pineapple juice

Garnish with:
One brandied cherry
One mint sprig
Two small slices fresh pineapple

Mix 1 to 1 ½ ounces Wray + Nephew overproof with equal parts fresh squeezed orange juice, cranberry juice and pineapple juice. Mix all ingredients in a shaker with ice. Strain into a glass. Drop in a brandied cherry, and garnish with a mint sprig and fresh cut pineapple.

Don't forget the key to a classic Jamaican rum punch:

One of sour – Lime

Two of sweet – Sugar

Three of strong – Jamaican rum

Four of weak – Water or ice
