Rhum Clément ‘Ti Punch
1 1/2 oz. Clément Rhum Agricole
A full bar spoon of Clément Sirop de Canne
A spherical lime disk (cut from the side of a lime to have about 50% zest & 50% pulp)
The Method: Take a lime and gently roll it on the table to soften the lime and bring the oils to the surface of the lime. Cut the lime in 4 spherical lime disks and discard the core. In a rocks or old-fashioned glass, squeeze the lime disk and pour a heaping bar spoon of Clément Sirop de Canne over the squeezed lime. Add Clément Rhum Agricole and use a Bois Lélé (i.e. pronged wooden swizzle stick usually plucked from a tree native to Martinique) or a simple bar spoon to stir and gently muddle for a few seconds the lime to blend the aromatic oils from the peel until the Sirop de Canne is well integrated. If desired, add a tablespoon of crushed ice or one ice cube and briefly stir again to chill the drink.
