Rum Punch Recipe
This one has a rhyme that goes with it to help you remember the recipe:
"1 of sour, 2 of sweet, 3 of strong, and 4 of weak.”
Simple and refreshing!
1 of sour = 1 measure of lime juice
2 of sweet = 1 measure of granulated sugar and 1 measure of syrup (see below)
3 of strong = 3 measures of Jamaican rum (I use a dark rum - the best!)
4 of weak = 4 measures of water
Mix all ingredients together and serve over ice.
A “measure” can be whatever you like, depending on how much you want to make – a jigger, a cup, etc. Just be sure to use the same “measure” for all four steps.
