Happy Birthday, Leatherneck

November 10th is the birthday of the Marine Corps, and my buddy Master Craftsman Rob North is a proud member of that corps. Rob came over and helped me build a bar, and in honor of that we recreated the drink that new recruits were enticed with back in 1775 when the Marines were first recruited in Tun Tavern.

The 1775 Rum Punch:

In a rocks glass

add 5 ice cubes

2 shots of dark rum

2 shots of lime juice

2 shots of honey syrup (or maple syrup or simple syrup)


add 1 dash of bitters
