First off, I've never been able to make what I would call a good ti punch with St James Amber.
The lime should be a slice off the side of the lime not 1.5 parts lime.

Ti is short for petite, and pronounced 'tea'.

Here's the recipe from Caribbean Spirits using Neisson or La Favorite.

In fairness to my London bartender friends, Trois Rivieres syrup is better than Dillon, DePaz or the sugar that I've seen used in that fair city.

Lastly, there is a vast difference between rhum agricoles. My favorites are Neisson and La Favorite that I import to the US. Unfortunately, these are hard to find in the UK.

When I dream up a better job, I'm going to take it. In the meantime, the research continues.
