Recipe: Fat Cat Rum Punch

Cocktail3This was the general favorite of our pre-Gaspirilla drink event at Datz Resutarant in Tampa, the other two being our Fat Cat Pineapple-Habanero Cocktail and our Fat Cat Habanero Rum Runner. What we liked most about this drink is that the inclusion of our Mexican-Style Habanero sauce blended perfectly with the sweet-fruity nature of the drink, without steering it in any unexpected directions. As such, this turned out to be a solid rum punch with just a hint of spice. We would enjoy this on any day and be proud to serve at any party. Plus, the ingredients can be easily scaled up to pitcher-size for parties — just make sure the proportions stay the same.

Here’s what we did:


1 oz. lime juice
2 oz. grenadine
2 oz. dark rum
1 oz. white rum
2 oz. pineapple juice
2 oz. orange juice
1/4-1/2 tbsp Fat Cat Mexican-Style Habanero sauce (depending on heat level)


Mix ingredients in a shaker and serve over ice in a Collins glass. Garnish with a slice of orange if desired.
