National Rum Punch Day offers us all a chance to brush up on our rum knowledge, as well as celebrate the beauty of its flavor when mixed with other ingredients, or all alone on the rocks…
Certain rums coming from Jamaica, Martinique and the area where the stronger rums come from create a wonderful, subtle quality & complexity, and can serve as fine brandy, where the lighter rums are great mixed in tropical beverages with cute umbrellas & fruit slapped on the side of the glass. Oooooooohhh!
When you think of the “alcohol of the season” from Fall through Winter, it may bring visions of rum punch, and hot toddies…
Today, I’m giving you a great recipe, in honor of National Rum Punch Day! Plus, this is a recipe you will use throughout the Holiday Season.
Rum punch can be made successfully with any of these rums, but rum punch does best with the gold/amber or medium bodied rums.
