Mandarin Punch


This cocktail is pleasingly rich and fruity with vanilla and caramel notes from the barrel aged rum and the flavored cognac in Mandarine Napoleon. In case you are wondering, this Mandarine Napoleon is my homemade knock off that tastes pretty good. I appreciate how mandarin-infused cognac really can alter the flavor of the fruit juices in this drink--you think that there is some fresh mandarin in there somewhere.

As always, I used fresh squeezed juices and saved some for the garnishes.

  • 1 1/2 oz. dark Jamaican rum (Pusser's used)
  • 1/2 (-1 oz. mandarin liqueur, maybe you have the actual Mandarine Napoleon)
  • 2 oz. orange juice
  • 2 oz. pineapple juice
  • orange slice
  • maraschino cherry

Combine juices and liquors in a shaker with ice. Shake and strain into a chilled cocktail glass. Garnish with the fruit pieces.
