Saša’s Rum Punch

By Stephen Thompson

This Rum Punch is a house creation courtesy of our very own Sasa Ruvidic. This fruit-forward tiki drink pays homage to the Painkiller – a caribbean classic made with rum, orange, pineapple and coconut. Sasa’s punch adds floral hibiscus syrup and overproof rum to finish.

The interplay of strong, funky rum and sweet fruity flavours in this drink make for a cocktail that is at once punchy and refreshingly fruity and moreish. This drink follows the style of classic tiki drinks like the Zombie in that it has a heavy rum base, skillfully disguised by some carefully chosen fruity flavours and modifiers.

25ml Orange Juice

25ml Pineapple Juice

25ml Lime Juice
