This was so much fun, experimenting with the 5 basics of a punch and see what you come up with.Too make this drink more exciting we added some dry ice and had a fun smokey celebration of Valentines.
The basics laid down centuries ago in India and the Indies and spread by the sailors.
1. Spirits = Vodka, Vanilla Vodka, Meyers Jamaican Rum
2. Sweet = Maraschino cherry juice
3. Sour = lime
4. Spice =vanilla, caramel flavor of Jamaica rum spice, (Meyers brand Rum has a particularly deep caramel flavor),Maraschino cherry juice which has an almond flavor.
5. water =ice
Here is the recipe
3 oz Vodka
3 oz Vanilla Vodka
1 1/2 oz Meyers Jamaican Rum
Squeeze of lime juice
Splash of Maraschino cherry juice
a small chip of dry ice
We added everything but the cherry juice in a shaker and we also added a chip of dry ice in the shaker so when you get a nice smoky pour that is dramatic
Here is a video we took pouring the Smoking Rum Punch
