The 20th of September is Rum Punch Day and no drink deserves a dedicated day as much as this timeless classic.
A cocktail which loosely following the adage of 'one of sour, two of sweet, three of strong and four of weak' first appears not with rum but with wine, in 1576.
This is a cocktail that has not only survived the test of time, but has improved with time. Modern Rum Punch recipes still loosly following the rhyming proportions but adapted to suit modern palates and ingredients.
