“Pretty Boy” Punch

RUM

What You Need

Ingredients

  • 2 oz Dark Rum (I used Mount Gay Eclipse)
  • 1 oz Fresh Grapefruit
  • 1/2 oz Fresh Lime Juice
  • 3/4 oz Blueberry Syrup
  • 2 Dashes of Angostura Bitters
  • San Pellegrino Blood Orange Soda

Instructions

1. Combine all ingredients (except for the blood orange soda) into a cocktail shaker. Add ice and shake to chill the cocktail. Strain into a highball glass filled with ice. Top with blood orange soda and garnish with a fake money (alternatively garnish with a lime wedge or grapefruit wedge).

How to Make Blueberry Syrup:

Combine 1 cup of water and 1 cup of blueberries into a medium saucepan on the stove. Press the blueberries and bring to a light simmer to release the juices from the blueberries. Pour in 1 cup of sugar and let dissolve. Strain out the blueberry solids through a fine mesh strainer or cheese cloth. Pour the syrup into a glass jar and store in the refrigerator for up to 2 weeks.

Quick Note: If you want to batch this cocktail, multiply the recipe above by the number of people you’re looking to serve.
