Des(s)ert Island Punch
For graham cracker coconut milk: break 2 graham crackers per 8 ounces of coconut milk into small pieces. Infuse for at least an hour, strain before using. (Note: if the coconut milk is not fully incorporated, heat gently while stirring until any fat melts)
- 6 oz Appleton Estate Signature Rum
- 1.5 oz Wray and Nephew Rum
- 3 oz Fresh Lime Juice
- 3 oz Demerara Syrup
- 1.5 oz Cynar
- 3 oz Graham-cracker Coconut Milk
Combine all ingredients except for milk.
Add 1/3 of the cocktail ingredients to the milk to ensure curdling.
Slowly add the rest of the cocktail ingredients, and allow to rest at least 15 minutes.
Strain the first third of the cocktail through your chosen medium.
Once the punch is running clear and a mat of curds has been formed, move the strainer to a clean container, and add the first run of punch back through.
Allow to strain completely, serve over ice and garnish.
For this cocktail recipe, the Grand 75, we combine the flavors of orange and the warmth of Grand Marnier cognac with lemon juice and champagne.
The Old Fashioned is the *original cocktail*, and dates back as far as the late 1700's. In fact, it's first mention is in 1798 in the London paper "Morning Post and Gazetteer" pre-dates the use of the word "cock-tail" in 1806 in "The Balance and Columbian Repository", which defined the drink as "composed of spirits of any kind, sugar, water and bitters...". The classic has endured today because of its special ability to unlock the subtle and unique flavors of all types of spirits. The drink is delicious, easy to make, and open to adaptation, which has made it a favorite for guests and bartenders for over 200 years.
