prince henry punch

3/4 oz Rhum Agricole Blanc (Clement Premiere Canne)
3/4 oz Aged Rum (Plantation Fiji)
3/4 oz Lime Juice
1/2 oz Green Chartreuse
1/2 oz Raspberry Syrup
6 dash Angostura Bitters

Whip shake, pour into a double old fashioned glass, fill with crushed ice, and garnish with mint and fruits in season (omit fruits).
In searching for more uses of the raspberry syrup batch that I had just made, I found the Prince Henry Punch created by Los Angeles bartender Pablo Moix in Punch Drinks. Its combination of Chartreuse and raspberry syrup made me recall the Frida crafted at the Waldorf-Astoria in 2010. Once prepared, the Prince Henry Punch welcomed the senses with a mint aroma over funky rum, caramel, and hints of herbal Chartreuse. Next, lime, berry, and caramel notes swirled on the sip, and the swallow proffered grassy and funky rum, raspberry, and Chartreuse flavors with a dry clove finish.
