Sugar Hill Punch From Cocktails 2010, Food & Wine Books

  • Ice
  • 2 oz amber rum
  • ½ oz apricot liqueur
  • 2 oz mango nectar or juice
  • 1 oz fresh lime juice
  • ½ oz Simple Syrup (recipe follows)
  • 4 basil leaves, torn, plus 1 basil sprig for garnish
  • 2 dashes bitters
  • 1 mango slice for garnish
Fill a cocktail shaker with ice. Add all of the remaining ingredients except the garnishes and shake well. Strain into an ice-filled glass and garnish with the basil sprig and mango slice.
Simple Syrup This bar staple is one of the most universal mixers, essential to mixing well-balanced cocktails. Stash a jar of the syrup in your refrigerator; it keeps for up to one month. In a small saucepan, combine 1 cup water and 1 cup sugar. Bring the mixture to a boil over moderately high heat, stirring to dissolve the sugar, about 3 minutes. Let cool, then transfer the syrup to a jar, cover, and refrigerate until ready to use. Makes about 12 oz.
