After one sip, you’ll confess all your sins.
Rum punch is my friend. It’s my go to rum drink when on island. Rum punch is a flexible, ever evolving concoction of goodness that has a plethora (I finally got to use the word plethora!) of different recipes. Each island, even each bar claims to have their own special recipe, they use local rum and are sure to satisfy. And satisfy they do, I don’t think I’ve ever had a bad rum punch, then again I’m pretty easy to please.
Today’s Boat Drink recipe comes to us from the shores of Grace Bay, Providenciales in the Turks and Caicos. The drink is called the TCI Rum Punch and is served up at the Grace Bay Club.
Enough talk, let’s mix.
TCI Rum Punch – Grace Bay Club Providenciales
- 1 oz Bambarra Gold Rum
- 1 oz Myers Rum (to float)
- 6 oz Pineapple Juice
- 3 oz Orange Juice
- ½ oz Maraschino Syrup
Mixing Instructions: Combine the fruit juice, syrup and rum *Slowly pour dash of grenadine in glass for dual color *Float the Myer’s Rum on top *Garnish with pineapple, pineapple leaf and maraschino cherry. Raise glass and toast.
The local Turks and Caicos Bambarra Rum might be a little hard to find so use your favorite gold rum. I can’t remember seeing any in our local south Florida stores and we usually get a great selection of Caribbean rums.
Let me know if you mix up a TCI Rum Punch. Does it take you back to the sand of Grace Bay? I hope so!
