In honor of one of our last family parties for perhaps a few years, due to our eminent departure to the US, I’m reposting the kick arse recipe for a party.
Ladies and gentlemen, look no further. I’m about to release my secret recipe for the best party cocktail ever. This fantastic creation can kick start ANY party.
I have made this cocktail for several family/friend gatherings, with huge success, and most people thought it was like drinking nectar.
The only downside to this mysterious and exotic drink is that it creates a level 10 hang over, so you have to drink sensibly.
WARNING! THIS IS NOT FOR KIDS
- 700ml of Rum
- 6 medium limes, washed and sliced in cubes
- 3 table spoons of sugar (super fine or granulated)
- 2.5lbs bag of roughly crushed ice
… and, here’s how magic is made:
First, go to the local off license and pick a nice bottle of Caribbean rum, preferably made from sugar can, but still white rum. Pour the content into a large jug and make sure to bring the bottle to the recycle bank.
Sprinkle the sugar over the top. Take out a long muddling stick or pestle and stir the mixture slowly.
Now, you can’t drink it immediately. You have to let it sit for at least 1 hour. That will make sure the lime and sugar has mixed, but more importantly, it has made the mixture ICE cold.
The only thing left to say “Have a great party!”. It is tempting to keep some in the fridge for a rainy day, but this is a party drink and it should be enjoyed in the company of good friends and family.
Oh, and remember to have some headache tablets ready for the next morning 🙂
Please remember to drink sensibly. DO NOT drink and drive.
