A few weeks ago I blogged about one of my dream destinations Turks & Caicos
on the other blog.
I featured this delectable photo and recipe for a Turks & Caicos-inspired rum punch.
I've been dreaming of drinking a rum-filled liquid like it ever since!
So, I decided to make it myself!
My logic works in a way that if I already own at least 1 ingredient for a cocktail, it's worth making!
Never mind I still needed to buy 4 other ingredients... But it was worth it!
To make your own Turks & Caicos-inspired rum punch, you need:
- 3 ounces fresh pineapple juice
- 2 ounces fresh orange juice
- 1 ounce gold (or dark) rum + 1/2 ounce to pour on top
- 1 ounce coconut rum,
- lime to garnish
In a cocktail shaker, or whatever you have near hand that you can mix these juices in, shake the pineapple juice, orange juice, 1 ounce rum, coconut rum and ice cubes together. Pour the juice in a glass. Add a shot of grenadine and watch it sink to the bottom. Gently pour the remaining rum on top, and add a lime wedge for garnish. Drink up!
