The Houston Maritime Museum was packed on February 17, 2017, as guests came together to enjoy a “walking tour” on the history and mixing of the favorite drink for sailors and pirates alike – rum!
Award-winning mixologist, Kimberly Paul lead the night’s festivities with tastings of four different cocktails made with Plantation Rum, including the famous Mojito. Hors d’oeuvres were served throughout the evening and guests were free to wander the museum. At the end of the night, there was no question as to “why is the rum gone?”
Father Labat’s Punch
Pere Jean-Baptiste Labat roamed the Caribbean from 1693 to 1705. He was a priest, but certainly no saint. Labat trafficked in slaves and paid no attention to “thou shall not kill.” He once fired 12 point-blank range cannon shots at a British ship. In 1694, the friar wrote down a partial recipe for punch. This is Kimberly Paul’s version to be made in a punch bowl.
- 750 ml – 5 yr. Plantation rum
- 750 ml – Spice* infused water
- 750 ml – Lime syrup
- Ice block made with spice* infused water
Serve over Ice.
*Nutmeg, cinnamon, cloves and allspice.
