Rum is the great Bajan drink. It is the base for a number of cocktails the
best known and simplest of which is Rum Punch.
To make Rum Punch is very simple. Just memorise this rhyme:
One of sour
Two of sweet
Three of strong and
Four of weak
Your sour is lime juice (sold ready squeezed in supermarkets), sweet is simple
syrup (again sold ready made in supermarkets - how easy is this), strong is
dark rum and weak is water, ginger beer, sprite or pink grapefruit according
to taste. Mix them all together with loads of ice and pour, grating a bit
of nutmeg on the top.
Best to make this in a large jug as it will go fast. If you make it with
water it will keep in the fridge for several days.
