Rum Punch

Method

This classic Caribbean cocktail combines sweet and sour flavours for a fruity weekend tipple.

  1. Pour the juices, rum, sugar syrup, grenadine and Angostura bitters into a large jug and give it a good stir. Pop into the fridge to chill for 1 hr.

  2. Serve over ice cubes, sprinkle over the nutmeg and garnish with an orange slice and maraschino cherry, speared with a cocktail stick.
