Caribbean Rum Punch-Heritage

Caribbean Rum Punch

I remember my mother mixing ingredients similar to these to make the most delicious looking rum punch. The version she made had more ingredients such as different fruit juices and fruits but I recently made this variation and it was very good.

    1 cup fresh lime juice

    2 cups simple syrup
Make this by (dissolving one cup of sugar in one cup of hot water, then cooled)

    3 cups amber rum

    4 cups orange juice

    4 dashes of Angostura Bitters

    Freshly grated nutmeg

In a pitcher, combine lime juice, simple syrup, rum and orange juice. Add a few dashes of bitters and some grated nutmeg to taste. Serve chilled over ice.
Warning: It has a delayed effect so drink responsibly.
