1 2 3 4 Caribbean Rum Punch

Makes…as much as you can handle!

I’m no mixologist, so I love when there’s a clear cut way to mix a drink, such as with the ever-mighty Rum Punch. The recipe is easy to remember, as long as you can count to four. You’ll need 1 part sour, 2 parts sweet, 3 parts strong, 4 parts weak.

As for what specific ingredients to use? That’s where you get to be creative. Take “Sweet” for example: that could be a sugar syrup or a naturally sweet fruit juice. You get to choose.

I went for a middle of the road drink – tropical, fruity and fresh without being cloying. As for the dash of nutmeg – it’s Grenadian fairy dust – be sure to add some for your finishing touch.

Ingredients:

1 part sour: fresh lime juice
2 parts sweet: pineapple juice
3 parts strong: rum
4 parts weak: orange juice

If my ratio confuses you, just replace the word “part” with cup, and you’ll end up with a little over a half gallon.

Garnish:

freshly grated nutmeg
1 lime, sliced thinly to add to pitcher and glass (optional)

Method:

Wouldn’t the world be grand if everything could be drunk out of mason jars?

Left to right: orange juice, rum, pineapple juice, lime juice.

Add all ingredients to a pitcher with a bunch of thinly sliced limes and a small mountain of ice. Dust with nutmeg. Instant festivity.

Serve with a smile and your favorite lawn game. Unless your favorite is lawn darts.

My favorite is either bocce ball or croquet.

What’s yours?
