Recipe: Model Ti Punch


Published:

"I​f you live in Martinique, you have a few of these cocktails a day. Three simple ingredients — Agricole Rum, cane syrup, and lime — are in every facet of your life. Sounds amazing? Luckily, American Fifth of Lansing makes a similar style of rum (it uses fresh cane juice instead of molasses) for this classic drink. If you substitute any other rum, just call it a Ti Punch." 

 

Model Ti Punch

Ingredients

2½ ounces American Fifth Turtleback White Rum 

¼ ounce cane syrup* with a 50/50 percent solution of syrup and hot water, stirred and cooled

¼ ounce tart cherry juice

1 fat round of lime peel (with some of the juicy bits)

Directions

Put everything in a stemless wineglass, making sure to squeeze the lime peel into the glass. Place a swizzle stick between your hands like you are starting a fire in the Boy Scouts and rub back and forth quickly. If you don’t have swizzle sticks, you can substitute a tall bar spoon. 

*(Check the oatmeal aisle at the grocery store if you can’t find it.)
