Hipsters. It’s gotten to where I look up any quick recipe for a drink and I get the designer version , with hand-crafted this and keep your bowtie out of the mixer that. Blech! I wanted to get back to basics. Something that tastes great and costs jack squat, like you’d get in New Orleans or Vegas. I went Tiki and made a traditional rum punch:
- 1 part orange juice
- 2 parts pineapple juice
- Bacardi Black, to taste. Suggest 1/2 part.
- Bacardi Superior, to taste. Suggest 1/2 part.
Then add Rose’s Grenadine to each individual glass, add enough to make some color (see picture).
That’s it bra/brotatos. No squeezing limes, no fancy designer stuff. Things you find cheaply at the grocery store. Cheap liquor. Tastes great, especially during a heat wave. If you want you can premix in the Rose’s grenadine too and make it kind of pink, and serve it in a giant iced tea dispenser.
Note 1: Traditional rum punch has lime juice too. I found that adds unnecessary sour to the punch. Especially when it is really hot.
Note 2: Libbey Tiki Glass link included. These are basically jelly jar glasses with a tiki face on front. Dishwasher and campground approved by R.J.
