How does the Ti Punch taste?
The Ti Punch is a very tart and alcoholic cocktail that nevertheless (or precisely because of this) scores with fresh flavours. At the first sip, the inexperienced cocktail connoisseur may be surprised: The drink tastes very alcoholic, but not strong. If you pay close attention, you will detect pleasantly fresh and sweet notes that become more enjoyable with each sip.
The answer to the Old Fashioned
The Ti Punch is the national cocktail of Martinique. It is the island’s direct answer to the American Old Fashioned cocktail. Traditionally, the drink consists of a strong shot of Martinique’s rhum agricole, rounded off with a touch of lime juice and a splash of sugar cane syrup. Of course, original Caribbean sugar cane syrup reduced from raw sugar cane juice would be optimal. However, ordinary sugar syrup also serves its purpose. Similar to the Old Fashioned, the Ti Punch is also made from just three ingredients that can be mixed together quickly and easily. Try both cocktails and find your personal favourite.
Tradition from the Caribbean
In the Caribbean, by the way, the drink is pronounced “tee paunch” – “ti” is the Creole variant of the French petit. Traditionally, the drink is also served without ice and at room temperature. For the inexperienced cocktail drinker, the first sip may be off-puttingly strong and alcoholic. However, no one can deny a pleasantly intense aroma. Each sip is underpinned by notes of fresh and tropical fruits as well as fresh sugar cane, which can be really enjoyable in the long run. Try the drink yourself and make up your own mind about the rum cocktail.
