tutu rum punch

2 oz Dark Rum (Plantation 5 Year Barbados)
3/4 oz Grapefruit Juice
3/4 oz Pineapple Juice
1/2 oz Falernum (Velvet)
1/2 oz Lemon Juice

Briefly pulse in a blender with 1 cup crushed ice (shake with ice and strain over crushed ice). Pour into a glass and garnish with a rock candy stick and a mint sprig (ornamental pea blossoms and mint).
After returning from Camp Runamok last Sunday, I was in the mood for a nightcap so I turned to Stephen Siegelman's Trader Vic's Tiki Party! for guidance. There, I spotted the Tutu Rum Punch that seemed like a good way to ease back into being home. Once prepared, it offered a mint and floral aroma. Next, grapefruit and the rum's caramel notes on the sip gave way to dark rum, pineapple, and clove flavors on the swallow.
