It’s slightly ironic that National Rum Punch Day falls on September 20th – just a few days before the official start of fall – but since the weather hasn’t really showed signs of autumn, we’ll let it slide and crack up a bottle of rum in celebration.
Cruzan® Classic Rum Punch:
Directions: Shake all ingredients with ice and strain into a tall drink glass. Garnish with pineapple.
Jamaican Negroni Punch: (Created by mixologist Jon Gasparini)
Directions: Combine juice of ten lemons and 30 cloves in a tupperware container or cake mold and freeze. Combine all other ingredients in a large punch bowl. Remove flavored ice block from the freezer and add to the punch bowl before serving.
Directions: Mix ingredients in a pitcher, pour into glasses, and add a mint leaf for garnish.
Endeavor Punch: (Created by David Wondrich)
Directions: Combine Banks 7 Golden Age Blend, Rainwater Madeira, lime juice, cold water, Pierre Ferrand Dry Orange Curacao and stir in the oleo saccharum until the sugar dissolves. Chill before service. Add to a punchbowl filled with one large block of ice, then drape the ends of the lemon peels reserved from the oleo saccharum over the sides of the bowl. Garnish with grated nutmeg over the top of the punch in the bowl.
