This variation of classic tropic cocktail Planter`s Punch with pompous name was found on my favorite Cocktail DB.
Hotel Drake Vesuvius
30 ml gold rum
30 ml Jamaica rum
30 ml fresh lemon juice
45 ml fresh orange juice
15 ml grenadine
1/2 tsp. sugar
Shake. Strain in highball glass filled with crushed ice. Garnish with fruit and mint sprig.
I use my new rum Bacardi Reserva as gold rum and El Dorado Demerara Dark Rum instead Jamaica Rum. Also I use unrefined cane sugar which I dissolved in lemon juice before shaking.
The Hotel Drake Vesuvius Cocktail has so sweet and refreshing taste with main palate of rum. It is simple but delicious rum punch.
