Ti’ Punch

Ti’ Punch

Ti’ Punch (pronunced “tee,” short for “petite”) is the national cocktail of Martinique, a country that produces some of the world’s finest rhum agricole.

It’s a lovely change of page from our usual Old Fashioneds, although it’s just as easy to make: a healthy pour of rhum agricole, a bit of simple syrup, and a squeeze of lime.

The traditional garnish is a lime coin, which is a small disc of peel sliced from the side of a lime. Try not to get too much pith with the coin; the best flavor comes from the peel itself, not the bitter white stuff behind it.

Ingredients

Instructions

Add the rhum agricole, simple syrup and the juice from the lime wedge to a short glass. Add a few ice cubes, or one large cube or sphere, and stir until chilled. Garnish with a lime coin, or a wedge or twist of lime.
