Jamaican Rum Punch (Crimean Cup à la Marmora)

Recommended Posts

Marekv8

A friend and I took over libations duties at an annual Christmas Eve party and whipped up this beauty-- taken from Ted Haigh’s “Vintage Spirits & Forgotten Cocktails” book. We tested six different Jamaican rums, four Maraschino liquors and four Cognacs to come up with the following mix. It proved to be absolutely delicious and a huge hit at the party.

 

  • Hamilton Jamaican Pot Still Black Rum
  • Mezan Jamaica 2000 Rum
  • Martell VSOP (a couple of 12+ year old bottles I had at the shop-- both corks fell apart while opening)
  • Maraska Maraschino
  • Giffard Orgeat
  • Fever Tree Club Soda

It is a nice punch although I tend to cut back on the sugar a bit. No champagne/sparkling wine?

Sorry, yes-- we used Jean Vullien Crémant de Savoie. The hostess saved me a 500mL bottle of the core mix sans soda and sparkling, so I can enjoy it again for New Year's Eve.
