Everything Nice Rum Punch

Falernum is a tiki staple containing a wealth of flavors, from lime and vanilla to almond, ginger, and clove. The Italian aperitif in play here has soft notes of orange, followed by a bitter finish. Combine them with fresh lemon juice, simple syrup, and Zacapa 23, a sensational, complex dark rum from Guatemala, and this one lives up to its name. It’s more of a deep summer sipper than a breezy tropical punch.
