KAMEHAMEHA RUM PUNCH

kamehameha-rum-punch-717x1024

Today it is the Kamehameha Day in Hawaii and so to celebrate – here`s a favorite again, Kamehameha Rum Punch.

This interesting drink recipe is from Sippin`Safari and originates from the Hotel King Kamehameha in Kona, Hawaii, as the origin of the drink around 1960. The reason i post it again is that today its the memorail day of Kamehameha the Great in Hawaii and that`s worth celebrating.

So who was King Kamehameha you might ask?  Kamehameha – also known as Kamehameha the Great was the head of a dynasty ruling the Hawaiian islands for more than a century. The name Kamehameha (pronounced kuh-may-ha-may-ha) means “the one set apart.” He conquered the Hawaiian islands and formally established the Kingdom of Hawai`i in 1810.

This drink is actually named after the Hotel King Kamehameha in Kona, Hawaii who took the name after the great Hawaiian King – Kamehameha.

Every year on Kamehameha Day (June 11, a state holiday in Hawai’i), National Statuary Hall is the scene of a ceremony in honor of the king and the statue of Kamehameha the Great is draped with lovely leis of fragrant flowers from Hawai’i. The Festival continues to pay tribute to Kamehameha and acts to preserve and perpetuate the Hawaiian culture.

I wish i could have a fragrant lei around my neck but will have to do with an ice cold drink..which isn´t bad at all.

RECIPE

1 oz Light Rum
2 oz Unsweetened Pineapple Juice
1/2 oz Lemon Juice
1 tsp Blackberry Brandy (i used Creme de Cassis)
1 tsp Grenadine (i used my homemade hibiscus grenadine, which adds a fresh tropical floral aroma)
1 tsp Sugar Syrup
1 oz Dark Rum

Shake everything but the dark rum with ice and strain into a tall or rocks glass filled with crushed ice. Float dark rum on top, and garnish with a pineapple chunk speared to a cherry.

Aloha and okole maluna!

    Yumm, tastes like summer! We have a cookout and pool party to go to tomorrow and this might be the drink I bring for the occasion. If so I might cut the dark rum by half and bump the light rum up instead to keep the less rummy partygoers happy.

    I honestly don’t think I’ve made this drink since the first or second month after Sippin’ Safari came out. Not sure why, because the one I’m sipping now is quite lovely.

  • That happens to me too, you try a drink, like it and then forget to make it for a long time..and then wonder why. But i think it may be because there´s so many drinks..
