Rum • Sweet
The Rum House Rum Punch

If you're in NYC’s Times Square neighborhood before or after a Broadway show, you might be hard pressed to find a decent cocktail among the mega chains and tourist traps that are common in the area. Luckily, there’s The Rum House, a classy respite from the madness that offers expertly-made libations and live music most nights of the week. As the name suggests, the bar specializes in rum drinks, whether you’re in the mood for a classic or one of their signature creations. Their Rum Punch has been a house favorite among both locals and tourists for years. “We created it as a happy hour special because we wanted to make something quick, easy, delicious and affordable for our guests,” co-owner Kenneth McCoy says. “We get a lot of guests from all over the globe, so trying to please is a challenge, but you know everyone loves rum.” Two types of rum pack a punch while pineapple and lime juices give it a tangy sweetness. Aromatic bitters round out the drink and provide balance, something that all palates will appreciate.
