Kick it Up the AngostuRAY Way!
A really easy effective way to make your dinner memorable is to have a delicious cocktail punch that you can give to your guests as they are all slowly arriving, something zesty, fruity, slightly sparkling will always get the evening started with smiles. A simple cocktail punch which any one can make quickly that packs a ‘punch’ (pun there hahaha) of flavour is one I call ‘CoCo rendezvous’.
Firstly you’ll just need a large bowl (four litre bowl or larger will work) and you simply add all ingredients, some ice, a ladle and some glasses and your guests can help themselves.
This is my recipe for the “CoCo rendezvous”:
400 mL : Angostura Reserva 3 year old Rum
10 Dashes : Angostura Aromatic Bitters
5 Dashes : Angostura Orange Bitters
300 mL : Lime Juice
200 mL : Elderflower Syrup
200 mL : Passionfruit Syrup
Two handfuls of fresh mint
Two litres of soda water (if you want it sweeter then add lemonade)
Two bags of frozen mixed berries (rather than adding ice which will dilute your punch, the frozen berries will thaw out chilling down your punch and acting as your garnish too)
Stir until all is well incorporated and mixed and ready to serve.
You’ll have fun creating this punch, and its not excruciatingly difficult to create. Now you’ve got the start to a simple way of how to make your dinner memorable. Happy Responsible Drinking everyone!
