Jasper’s Jamaican Planter’s Punch
Tried this last night for the first time, subbed in Barrilito rum (puerto rico). The nutmeg tends to preserve the caramel taste of the liquor and make for a pleasingly rum-forward cocktail.
[copied the recipe from this book
. also, I only had orange slices, which was plenty]
1.5 oz dark Jamaican rum (Coruba)
1.5 oz Jasper’s Secret Mix (see below)
Add to a 10-ounce highball glass filled with cracked ice. Stir vigorously. Top off with more ice.
Jasper garnished his with a pineapple spear, an orange slice, and a cocktail cherry.
Steve garnishes his with fresh mint.
Jasper’s Secret Mix
Juice of 12 limes
1.5 cups sugar
1.25 oz Angostura bitters
½ whole nutmeg, grated
Stir the ingredients together in a mixing vessel until the sugar dissolves.
Let steep in the refrigerator for at least two hours.
