Yes, the article was heavy and went deep.
So, I thought I would share this recipe that appeared in the 1908 edition of the New York Times.
The recipe is inspired by Jamaica’s classic Planter’s Punch Recipe.
Ingredients – (A measure is usually a cup or 8oz)
One measure of Sour – Lime juice.
Two measures of sweet – Sugar Syrup (Flavored like Cherry or Strawberry if you prefer)
Three measures of Strong – the Rum of YOUR choice.
Four measures of weak – usually means ice or some seltzer or tonic water.
Enjoy your Jamaican Rum Punch … and “Give Thanks.”)
