The holidays are over and the first full work week of the new year has begun. But if your re-entry to reality has been a bit rough, well, we can relate. That’s why as soon as we get home we’ll be mixing up a pitcher of this Bajan rum punch. The traditional recipe, shared by Elegant Hotels (a portfolio of five resorts on the island where rum was born) is centuries old. But its results will make you feel brand new. Here’s to 2016!
Elegant Hotels’ Classic Bajan Rum Punch
1 measure freshly squeezed lime juice
2 measures simple syrup
3 measures Mount Gay rum (the older, the better!)
4 measures of water
A dash Angostura bitters
grated nutmeg, to taste
Mix all ingredients in a Collins glass over ice. Finish with a dash of bitters and grated nutmeg. Raise a toast to 2016.
