Today I have a tasty cocktail recipe to share with you. Perfect for a weekend treat?
Whisk yourself away to a Caribbean island with a taste of this fabulous cocktail: Spice Island Rum Punch.
This easy to make cocktail recipe is a mixture of these ingredients: ginger ale, lime juice, root ginger, nutmeg, sugar, dark rum ice cubes topped with lime wedges. Yummy!!
Preparation: 5 minutes
- 1 lime, cut into 8 wedges
- 4 tbsp lime juice
- 1-2 tsp grated fresh root ginger
- 2 tbsp Tate & Lyle Demerara Sugar
- Pinch of freshly grated or ground nutmeg
- Ice cubes
- 100ml dark rum
- 200ml ginger ale
How to make a spice island rum punch cocktail:
1. Take two tumbler-style glasses and put 3 lime wedges into each one. Add 2 tbsp lime juice, 1 tsp grated ginger and 1 tbsp Tate & Lyle Demerara sugar to each glass with a pinch of nutmeg, then use a small wooden spoon to ‘muddle’ the ingredients together (this just means bashing and crushing the ingredients together).
2. Make sure that the sugar has dissolved, then half fill the glasses with ice cubes. Pour the dark rum into the glasses.
3. Top up with ginger ale and serve immediately, decorated with the remaining lime wedges.
If your wooden spoon doesn’t fit into the glass, just use the handle, or you could use the end of a wooden rolling pin for ‘muddling’.
