What if I told you that transporting back to the islands is as easy as 1-2-3? Well, it’s more like 1-2-3-4 and it comes in the form of a sweet yet tangy concoction that goes down easy (maybe too easy)…

So, what’s the secret to the perfect rum punch? It’s all in the ratios; all you need to remember is this rhyme for the perfect rum punch:

One of Sour, Two of Sweet, Three of Strong & Four of Weak


  • 1 ounce Lime/Lemon Juice (Sour)
  • 2 ounces Simple Syrup (Sweet)
  • 3 ounces of White or Dark Rum (Strong)
  • 4 ounces of Fruit Juice (Weak)

How to make it…

Shake and serve over ice in your favorite glass with a fruit garnish if you really want to get into the island vibe. Feel free to add Angostura Bitters, Nutmeg or Grenadine if you’ve got it on hand.

Sit back, relax and sip your way to paradise!
