J.P.'s Punch


J.P. must have been a bartender who worked at a beach bar. Anyway, he was good with a blender. I can imagine bar guests watching him slice a banana and tossing the pieces into the pitcher with all the spirits and juices that he hardly takes time to measure before blending up several of these cocktails at once. 

This might actually be my first single serving blended punch featured on this blog. I'm not a huge fan of beach hut cocktails and blenders in general. They water down the flavor and make a lot of the measurements of liquor imprecise as you struggle to fit all of the drink into a single glass. But for a punch, this isn't bad. Double or triple the recipe for friends and you'll be a hit just like J.P.

  • 1 oz. light rum (Rhum Barbancourt used)
  • 1 oz. dark rum (Pusser's navy rum used)
  • 2 oz. orange juice
  • 1 oz. pineapple juice
  • 1/2 oz. lime juice
  • 1/2 sliced banana
  • maraschino cherry garnish

Combine all liquid ingredients in a blender with ice. Blend until smooth and pour into a chilled double Old Fashioned glass. Garnish with the cherry.
