Default Bermuda Rum Swizzle

re. Rum Punch, Bermuda Rum Swizzle is a classic beverage here on this island. Everybody has their own recipe/techniques, but here is mine (i usually make in 5 gallon quantities). It's not something you'd want to pour a lot of expensive rum into, but makes a great hot weather drink.

Fill a pitcher/jug/clean plastic garbage pail (seriously) 1/4 full with ice.

1 part 'gold' rum (i like cockspur)
1 part 'white' rum
1/2 part gosling's black seal rum

1 part unsweetened orange juice
1 part pineapple juice
1/2 part unsweetened grapefruit juice

stir and slowly stir in grenadine syrup. You can use quite a bit of this, more than you'd think was appropriate. The drink should be orange-red to orange-brown depending on your taste and the color of the gold rum you used.

Alternatively, you can use Falernum syrup. Personally I use Grenadine so that's what I recommend. You can also add fresh citrus slices to the pitcher if you want. You can also mix and match how the proportions of each rum. Most people do not use grapefruit juice, but again, that's my recipe so here it is.

You can bottle and store in the fridge for months, it seems to get more potent the longer it's in there, although I don't know if that's fact or fiction!

When making punches ahead of time, I mix all of the non-alcoholic ingredients and then refrigerate them if necessary, then add the alcohol no more than a few hours before the punch will be drunk. Fruit juices, especially fresh juices, change considerably, oxidize, when their left sitting around. This is only one of the reasons that their are very few commercially bottled rums flavored with real fruit.

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

I tend to use lemonade and rum quite a bit myself. Throw in a splash of cherry syrup or grenadine and you've got a nice refreshing summer drink.
