Default Rum Punch

Below is a recent press release from SKYY Spirits. Some nice recipes here.


FLOR DE CAŇA RUM PACKS A PUNCH
Posted: March 18th, 2009 under Flor de Cana.

The ultimate party libation comes full circle

NEW YORK CITY (March 9, 2009) - A cocktail classic dating back before the 17th century, punch is back once again as the ultimate at-home celebratory drink.

Hindi for “five,” a true punch is comprised of five main components: sugar, water, citrus, spice, and alcohol. Phil Ward, a leading New York mixologist has created five new signature Flor de Caсa rum punch recipes, loaded with taste and panache. “Punch is easy to make, festive and deservedly enjoying a major at-home resurgence,” Ward says. His punch recipes include the refreshing Flor de Caсa Flip Flop punch made with grapefruit juice and chamomile infused Flor de Caсa 4-year old rum, and a cozy winter themed punch called Goodnight Moon prepared with grated nutmeg, cloves and bitters. Ward also shares a spicy Cardamom and Pop punch as well as the tempting Green Acre Punch made with green tea, lime juice and garnished with a mint sprig.

An Indian discovery, punch gained popularity amongst sailors who took advantage of the abundance of Caribbean sugar cane as a perfect ingredient for their new drink of choice. When punch arrived in the new world, many drinkers relished the taste, texture and simplicity of the drink, and enjoyed sharing it in large quantities. “It’s the original mixed drink,” says David Wondrich, punch historian and connoisseur. “It caught on early in American history and quickly became a sensation.” In the 1930s, punch reemerged as an alternative social cocktail, ideal for consumers, whose once refined palates could no longer handle strong highball cocktails. Post-prohibition, as drinkers got their groove back, a significant return to the timeless cocktail emerged, and from its historical ties, punch surfaced as the grandfather of the classic cocktail movement.

Given the down economy, home entertaining is back in vogue, making punch the perfect cocktail solution of any home soiree. Similar to the needs of sailors long ago, hostesses can relish in punch’s easy preparation and simple set-up. With a punch bowl and ladle nearby, guests can effortlessly enjoy the evening’s festivities over a tasty glass of punch.
