pata punch

1 oz Lemon Juice
2 oz Orange Juice
1 oz Pineapple Juice
1/2 oz Curaçao (Van der Hum)
1 oz Light Puerto Rican Rum (Don Q Cristal)
1 oz Dark Jamaican Rum (Smith & Cross)
1/4 oz Grenadine

Pour over cubes in a Mai Tai glass and stir (shake with ice, strain into a Tiki mug, and fill with crushed ice; garnish).
Two Thursdays ago, my post-work shift mood wanted something fruity and refreshing so I selected Trader Vic's 1972 Bartender's Guide for inspiration. There, the Pata Punch with three juices, two fruity syrups/liqueurs, and a pair of rums seemed to be the answer. Once assembled, the punch proffered mint and floral aromas. There were no surprises on the orange, lemon, and pineapple-filled sip, and the swallow likewise shared funky rum notes with a fruity finish.
