RECIPE

Ocean Prime Rum Punch

Marisa Chafetz / Supercall

It’s hard to find a Rum Punch that isn’t sweet. But just because the party-ready beverage is juicy and fruity doesn’t mean you can’t balance out those sweet notes with flavors that are sour and even spicy. “Our Rum Punch is a perfect swirl of sweet, spice and tart,” says Kevin Flannery, general manager and certified sommelier of Ocean Prime New York. “The Don Pancho rum and Ancho Reyes liqueur are balanced by the freshly squeezed juices to compose a flawless punch.” Even though you could use store-bought bottled orange juice in a pinch, this punch truly shines when it’s made with the freshest stuff possible.
