The Story Behind The Jamaican Rum Punch
One of the most cherished aspects of drinking cocktails is that the flavors have the potential to transport you to another time or place. This one is for the people that desperately need a tropical vacation, but who just need it to come to them instead. This Caribbean-inspired tipple calls for flavors of pineapple, lime, coconut, pepper, mint, and cinnamon which are fool-proof flavor pairings that will always deliver.
While this tiki-natured punch is a bit more labor intensive, it’s for good reason: Good things come to those who wait. Use the freshest ingredients possible and, after the initial infusion, the French press will apply the necessary pressure to release some of the additional flavor from the solid elements of the drink. The longer the mix marinates, the greater the flavor; so sip, savor, and relish this one.
