I have talked about punch earlier and left you with the little Caribbean ditty: “One of sour, two of sweet, three of strong, and four of weak. Add some spice to make it nice!” This is all well and good for making punch and I have relied on it many times. We are talking about a different punch today though. We are talking about the little punch or petite punch that has been shortened to the ti’ punch thanks to the French creole slang on the island of Martinique.
I would give you an exact recipe if I could but this drink doesn't work that way. I make mine the way that Ed Hamilton showed me how to one blurry evening in Chicago.
In a Small Rocks Glass:
Cut a Lime Coin and Squeeze/Drop Into the Glass
A Dime Size Drop of Cane Syrup
~45 ml High Proof Martinique Rhum
Stir or swizzle to incorporate.
Add an ice cube or two if you wish.
Note: For sugar I like to use Petite Canne Sugar Syrup and for the rum I enjoy Neisson Rhum Blanc or La Favorite.
These are a total doozy. You've been warned.
