Recipe by Susan Tonge,
An Antiguan old fashioned rum punch mixed to serve and entertain a large party crowd.
3-5 Gallons – serves an entire party!
3x, 1 ¾ ltr. bottles Antigua Cavalier Gold Rum
1 ½ ltr. concentrated lime or lemon juice
2lb. fresh limes, squeezed
1 pack cinnamon sticks
2 tsp. each ground clove and nutmeg
2 tsp. Angostura Aromatic Bitters
Approx. 2 lbs. sugar (sweeten to taste)
Fresh lime, lemon and orange slices for garnish.
Add first 6 ingredients to a large beverage cooler or big water fountain bottle. Slowly add sugar and water alternating each until the desired strength is obtained. Keep tasting as you adjust flavourings. Stir or shake punch whilst wiggling to get into the party mood.
This is the secret ingredient that adds the special touch. The more you taste, the less difference it makes! It is best to make this rum punch at least 1 day ahead of your party to imbue the aromatic cinnamon and spices. Enjoy the party.
