Here is another summer cocktail, Jasper’s Rum Punch:

Stir with cracked ice in an 8-ounce highball glass. Garnish with a cherry.

Okay, so this doesn’t seem much different than Jasper’s Planter’s Punch – the only change is a different rum. But, man does it really change the flavor.

I like the Planter’s Punch but I loved this drink. Even though you are drinking 126-proof spirit, Jasper’s mix mellows it out and I could drink a pitcher of this stuff.

I’m not suggesting that would be a good idea, but …

Andrea didn’t care for it. She thought it was too strong, but if you like a little bite in your cocktails you’ll like this one.

Rating: 5/5

Notes: You can’t get Wray & Nephew White Overproof Rum in North Carolina, but I am blessed to have some good friends in Florida who are willing to mule it up here from Total Wine & More.
