Hi-Pitch Punch Recipe
Here is the recipe that I will be featuring in one of the new drink menus at Paradisus Palma Real Hotel in Punta Cana. It is rum based without complications – simple and effective. Like an antique it doesn´t mess with a good foundation and is inspired by the great classics. It takes a drink like the Daiquiri to a stage of —even more classic— punch. It actually works beautifully both as a one serve drink, as well as a bowl of punch. Just adjust the amount of ingredients to your batch size to preserve balance. Oh, this is what I call pure joy!
Glassware: coupe cocktail glass
Method: shaken, hard!
Garnish: dash of Angostura bitters and 1 fresh sage leaf
45 ml aged Caribbean Rum
22 ml white grapefruit juice
10-15 ml Orgeat syrup
1 piece (4 g) of fresh ginger (mix it)
NOTE: substituting Orgeat with cinnamon syrup (1:1) works great too, but be careful as not everyone likes cinnamon.
