gun club punch #1

1 oz Light Puerto Rican Rum (Caliche)
1 oz Dark Jamaican Rum (Coruba)
Juice 1 Lime (3/4 oz)
1 dash Grenadine (3/8 oz)
1 dash Curaçao (3/8 oz Van der Hum)
1 1/2 oz Pineapple Juice

Blend with 1 scoop of ice, pour into a large tumbler, and fill with ice (shake with ice and strain into a tall glass filled with fresh ice). Garnish with mint and a fruit stick (mint and a lemon twist).
After returning home from my adventures in Boston, I reached for Trader Vic's Rum Cookery and Drinkery for something tropical. There, I spotted one of the Gun Club Punch variations that seemed to do no wrong. Once mixed, the punch gave forth mint notes over a fruity aroma. Next, caramel, lime, pomegranate, and a vague fruitiness from perhaps the pineapple and orange liqueur mingled in the sip. And finally, the swallow offered dark funky rum and pineapple flavors with an orange finish.
