When in the West Indies…

The classic Ti' Punch

The classic Ti’ Punch

This simple but powerful cocktail is a classic in Martinique. As you would expect there are countless minor variations in the recipe. The name is derived from the Creole Petit Punch but there is nothing small or petite about its power. As most Rhum Agricole’s are bottled at higher proof you don’t need many to feel its wrath.


  • 2 ounces Rhum Agricole
  • 1/4 to 1/2 ounce Cane Syrup
  • Juice of half of a lime


Add the three ingredients to an Old Fashioned glass, or a glass of comparable size, and stir well to combine. Top with ice and stir to cool and add a lime medallion if you like.
