Hi hello, everyone's least favorite piss colored fairy thing here, back at it again. I am once again both in the mood to make drinks and in the mood to post, and you all have to suffer the consequences. Post in here if you're drinking, or post in here if you're not and just feel like sharing your pickles of knowledge.
Today's brew is for those of you in southern climes, or for anybody with spare rum around who doesn't care about what weather it is outside, and it's called Trinidad Rum Punch! Perhaps if there was a more communist variant I'd make it, but it appears to be named as such because that's where the angostura bitters comes from, or at least one of those islands nearby. Feel free to follow along with these instructions, or dont, not like I can stop you. The list of ingredients you'll need include
1.5 ounces rum (ideally golden or dark rum, spiced might be good too, white rum is a little too plain)
1.5 ounces lemon and/or lime juice (I for one am going to be using a mix that's one ounce lemon half an ounce lime, or roughly juice from half the lemon and lime respectively)
Half an ounce of grenadine
The process of making it is simple, simply pour all but the soda water in a big glass with ice, then stir so it gets a nice even consistency. Then top it off with the fizzy water. Garnish it with pineapple wedges, cherries, lemon/lime slices, or whatever you feel will make you comfortable. I'll post the results in a few minutes
Give it about 40 days and I will be having plenty of that muchacho
Anyways, here it is! I'm gonna have to make some modifications to this if I make it again because the citrus is kinda overpowering, and I'd say you'll want to use a full ounce of grenadine rather than just half. Slightly less citrus, slightly more rum. The vital thing though is to drink it using a straw. Overall it's a lot like a shirley temple with a bit of a tiki vibe to it. I dont really notice the angostura at all, but maybe that's because it blends in with the citrus? Who knows
