There is nothing quite like a ti' punch.
'Ti,' from the French word 'Petit' translates to an affectionate little punch. So a ti' punch is an adorable little punch.
With only three ingredients, it couldn't be simpler. Pour a splash (1/4 teaspoon)
Petite Canne sugar cane syrup in a glass.
Squeeze a small slice of lime, cut from the side of the lime, over the cane syrup.
Add a measure of rhum agricole blanc, stir and add ice.
Allow the ice to chill the cocktail, while the flavor of the rhum, sugar cane syrup and lime blossoms.
For a drink with a richer, more mature flavor
enjoy a punch vieux.
Mix a ti' punch with rhum vieux,
but with a little less sugar cane syrup.
