Ainsley's Moms Caribbean Rum Punch, Created by Tiare Olsen, Blogger, Sweden

Makes about 16 drinks

3/4 cup ( 175g) brown sugar

3/4 cup (175ml) boiling water

1 tsp angostura bitters

juice of 4 limes and 4 lemons

2/3 cup (150 ml) strawberry syrup

14 oz (400 ml) canned mango pulp – (i used pineapple juice instead)

4 cups (1 liter) tropical fruit juice

1-1.5 cups (250-300ml) white rum

4 cups (1 liter) lemonade or sparkling mineral water

Plenty of ice – i used cracked ice

Quartered lime and orange slices for garnish

Stir the sugar and water together until the sugar has dissolved and leave to cool – or use a simple sugarcane syrup.

Mix the syrup with the lime and lemon juices, angostura bitters, pineapple juice or mango pulp, strawberry syrup and rum and stir together until well mixed. Set aside and chill until ready to serve.

Stir in the fruit juice and lemonade and serve with plenty of cubed or cracked ice. Garnish with lime and orange slices or add a sprig of mint and a cinnamon stick if you make just one or two drinks.

This is an old style Jamaican rum punch and it´s a comfort drink, fruity, rummy and if you grate some fresh nutmeg and dust over it it becomes even better.

“I like these kinds of caribbean rum punches and they can be varied a lot, add some spices to the mix with the boling water and let it soak for a while to add some extra depth and spiciness, also pimento dram is good for that.” Tiare Olsen
