1 part Jamaica rum
Ingredient: Jamaica rumWhat it is: Rum
Generic term for dark rum from Jamaica. Dark rum differs from gold in that some residual molasses is retained in the final product, in order to slightly sweeten the flavor. Very popular in the late 1800s and superior to most New England rums. Modern approximations include Inner Circle, Gosling's Black Seal and Pusser's Navy Rum.
5 part water
Ingredient: waterWhat it is: Additive
Ubiquitous chemical substance that is composed of hydrogen and oxygen and is essential for all forms of life -- also a component of all drinks.
Ingredient: lemonWhat it is: Fruit
Common name for Citrus limon.
Ingredient: sugarWhat it is: Additive
Many 19th century recipes specifically called for white sugar, which is more refined and preferred over browner sugars. But modern white sugar is probably too refined, making raw cane sugar the best, easily available choice.
Two parts old St. Cruz rum; one part old Jamaica rum, five parts water; lemons and sugar ad lib. This is a nice punch.
