Bermuda Punch

Bermuda Punch cocktail with rum and falernum

This class rum punch recipe we dug up in the archives of Saveur magazine is tasty, but runs a bit on the tart side. If your citrus isn’t very sweet, consider cutting back a bit on the lemon juice.

The original recipe calls for a mix of dark and aged rum. However, it’s just as nice with one of those switched out for Demerara rum or spiced rum. We don’t recommend light rum here, as it could contribute an astringent tartness and upset the delicate balance of the drink.

Angostura bitters are the default – but if you have peach, orange, or tiki-style bitters, they’ll do nicely here.

Ingredients

Instructions

Shake with ice and strain into a chilled cocktail glass, wine glass, or pimp goblet. Garnish with some fruit or a silly parasol – it is a tiki drink, after all!

Get the App

The Cocktail Party app puts this drink – and hundreds more – in your pocket, and tells you what you can make from the ingredients you have at home. It's the best $3.99 you'll ever spend on a drink.

This app ROCKS!!!

I've used a number of mix drink apps, and this one is by FAR the BEST! I've made a couple dozen drinks so far, and they're delicious. It suits my quality wants while (more importantly) suiting my inherent laziness. You put in what you have on hand, and it automatically lists all the drinks you can make! There's info on all the ingredients, which is pretty neat to learn some backstory. What I truly like is I can click an ingredient and it shows how many more drinks I can make. It's pretty fun picking up a new item and seeing 8 new drinks to try. There's a setting on the iPad that locks the app on so people can switch on the mixing app without letting anyone out of it, so I leave it by the bar and people can use it without worry of people snooping around. ;) The combination of all the drinks and this app that makes searching for, and making a drink, easy peezy lemon squeezey, and gives a real feeling of sophistication.
