SGGBA rum punch ingredients

Three cups Neptune Rum Caribbean Spiced, two cups granulated sugar, one cup fresh lime juice, two cups crushed ice, two cups cold water, two dashes Angostura Bitters, grated nutmeg and ginger ale.

How to make the SGGBA rum punch

Create the sugar syrup, by putting sugar in a small saucepan, add two cups of water and bring to a boil, stirring constantly. Lower heat and simmer for three to five minutes until sugar is completely dissolved. Remove from heat and cool. Pour the syrup into a large container.

Then add lime juice, Neptune Rum Caribbean Spiced, and ice and mix well. Add a dash of Angostura Bitters and a pinch of nutmeg and continue to mix.

Finally pour, and top glasses up with ginger ale. Serve ice-cold.
