Episode 46: Rhum JM VSOP

5 Minutes of Rum episode 46: Rhum JM VSOP, Luxardo Cherries, and the 3 Dots and a Dash cocktail.

3 Dots and a Dash, as served at Smuggler's Cove.

Serving punch from a 40 gallon volcano bowl, as you do.

3 Dots and a Dash

1/2 oz fresh lime juice
1/2 oz orange juice (fresh if possible)
1/2 oz honey mix
1 1/2 oz aged agricole rhum (Rhum JM VSOP)
1/2 oz demerara rum (Hamilton 86)
1 dash Angostura bitters
1/4 oz falernum
1/4 oz pimento dram

Combine with 3/4 cup crushed ice in a spindle blender. Mix for 5 seconds and pour unstrained into a “specialty” glass. I’ve found that small wine goblets work well, as does a squat stemless cocktail glass. Garnish with 3 Luxardo cherries on a skewer. 

Tiki Oasis 10th Anniversary Punch

1 oz Rhum JM VSOP
1 oz Zaya rum
1 oz strong English tea
1 oz fresh lime juice
1/2 oz cinnamon syrup
1/2 oz vanilla syrup
1/4 oz demerara sugar syrup (optional, depending on the sweetness of your syrups)

Combine in a shaker tin with ice. Shake and pour unstrained into a volcano mug or a double old-fashioned glass. To make it a punch, just multiple each ingredient by the total number of desired servings.
