Black River Punch

This is the pirate tiki mug from @deathandcompany. And it's filled with the Black River Punch recipe by Kevin Upthegrove @5minutesofrum. This drink provides a perfect representation of a classic rum punch that would not be described as "fruity" or tropical, yet is full of the intense complex flavor combo we all love in many "tiki drinks." . In addition to its backbone of a hefty dose of full-flavored rum (3 full ounces!), this punch includes all the key elements of a classic punch: alcohol, sugar, citrus, water, and tea/spice. It's more of a Planter's Punch (rum punches historically popular amongst sugar planters in the Caribbean, see #BarFaithPlantersPunch) than tropical beachside libation, and follows the traditional template of "1 of sour, 2 of sweet, 3 of strong, 4 of weak" quite well. If the ingredients listed below seem enticing, give it a try and it will surely not disappoint. ???? ? Black River Punch ? 3oz funky Jamaican rum (I split between Smith&Cross and @rational_spirits Santeria) ? 2oz strong black tea ? 1oz lemon juice ? 1oz demerera sugar syrup (adjust as needed) ? .5oz falernum ? .25oz allspice dram (see #BarFaithAllspiceDram) ? Shake all ingredients with plenty of crushed ice. Dump all into your favorite cup or tiki mug. Grate some fresh nutmeg on top and enjoy. . . #BarFaith #BarFaithBlackRiverPunch #tikimug #tikimugs #tikidrinks #tikidrink #rumpunch #rumlovers #planterspunch #tikimuglife #homebar #homebartender #craftcocktails #cocktailoftheday #drinkstagram #liqpic #mixology #refusethestrawmovement
