This tropical, mellow blend of rum, fresh grape juice, and herbs will take you to a Zen place, promises Daniel Shoemaker of Teardrop Lounge in Portland, Oregon.
2 cups white rum (try Ron Matusalem Platino)
1¼ cups fresh-pressed grape juice (try Santa Cruz Organic Concord)
½ cup fresh lime juice
¼ cup Yellow Chartreuse
1½ tbsp. amaro (try Averna)
½ cup tonic water (try aromatic, not-too-bitter Fever Tree)
Seedless red grapes and/or lime wedges for garnish
Note: If serving in a punch bowl, make ice in large plastic food-storage containers. The bigger blocks will keep the drink from getting overly diluted.
Combine ingredients, except tonic water and garnishes, into a large pitcher and stir gently. Pour into collins glasses filled with ice and top with a splash of tonic. Garnish with the grapes or lime wedges (or both!).Read MoreLess
