The Smoked-Rosemary Rum Punch by Serious Eats offers a refreshing update to a traditional recipe utilizing smoldering as a cooking technique to infuse the beverage with new flavors. The smoking of the herb adds a level of warmth to the drink that is ideal for the wintery seasons.
The rum punch begins with golden rum, orgreat, water and a homemade smoked rosemary citrus simple syrup. The syrup is made from fresh rosemary that is held over an open flame till gas begins to be released from the plant without a blaze being set. The spring is then added to a mixture of lime and water till reduced. The pine notes of the rosemary add a minty flavor to the holiday drink that encapsulates the flavors of the season.
Adding a new element of preparing the ingredients in cocktails offers a refreshing experimentation with classic holiday flavors.
