Ti' Punch

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) of 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.

Punch Vieux

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.

Variation on a Bees’s Kiss

This drink is commonly made with light and dark rum, or a combination of the two. La Favorite Rhum Vieux adds a nice flavor to the honey and cream and the richer flavor of the aged rhum is much better than the flavor of a white or overproof rum.

- 1 1/2 oz La Favorite Rhum Vieux
- 3/4 oz cream
- 2 tsp honey
Shake over crushed ice. Strain into a champagne glass and dust with freshly grated cinnamon.

Ginger Daquiri

During a trip to Washington, DC, I was introduced to Justin Ulysses Guthrie at Central Michel Richard on Pennsylvania Ave who served this delightful ginger daiquiri.
The combination of Neisson Blanc and ginger was better than anything I've made myself so I want to share it with you.

- 1.75 oz Neisson Blanc
- 1.25 oz Massenez Crème de Gingembre
- 1.25 oz Fresh Lime Juice
- 1.25 oz Ginger Syrup (see recipe)
- Ginger Syrup ingredients -
- 6 oz Fresh Ginger (peeled and julienned)
- 2 rinds of Lemon with pith removed
- 4 cups Sugar
- 4 cups Water

Combine ingredients in a shaker over ice, shake and strain into a martini or daiquiri glass. Garnish with lime wheel or candied ginger. Ginger Syrup preparation. Bring to a low boil and remove from heat. Let ingredients soak in syrup for 1 hour and strain. Be careful not boil the ginger and peel or the mixture will brown and turn bitter.
