Cesar’s Rum Punch

This was a famous rum punch back in the day. Guests would flock to the Grand Hotel Oloffson in Port-au-Prince, Haiti, to get a taste of this drink from the bartender, Joseph Cesar. Rhum Barbancourt — the national rum of Haiti — is a little hard to get a hold of these days, so give this one from Arcane a go.

  • 60 ml Arcane Gold Rum ‘Delicatissime’
  • 60 ml lime juice

  • 5 ml sugar syrup
