Punches are a class of cocktails that mix five or more ingredients together to make a fruity, refreshing beverage for a hot day.  It seems that the majority of punches use rum as an alcoholic base.

Our punch today is in this tradition.  Using rum, limeade, lime juice, simple syrup, and amaretto for that Mediterranean flavor.


Watch the Video!
Here is the recipe, for one drink:
1 1/2 oz. rum
1/2 oz. amaretto
1 oz. fresh squeezed lime juice
1 oz. simple syrup
limeade


In a highball glass, 2/3 filled with crushed ice, pour all ingredients except limeade.  Fill to top with limeade and stir.

Cheers!
