Review:

In Jamaica, the spiritual home of the Rum Punch, they like their rum overproof and many prefer this cocktail served over crushed ice to further dilute and tame this very strong spirit.

Variant:

Planter's Punch

History:

The classic proportions of this drink are one of sour (lime juice), two of sweet (sugar syrup), three of strong (rum) and four of weak (water/juice/cold tea), a formula respected in our recipe.

Our Punch page details the history of Punch.

Alcohol content:

  • 1.6 standard drinks
  • 15.33% alc./vol. (30.66° proof)
  • 23.1 grams of pure alcohol
