Hibiscus Punch Emerald Beach Hotel

July 1968
    Can there be a more appropriate mixological metaphor for British colonialism than a drink that combines rum and Pimm’s? Emerald Beach Hotel, the first in the Bahamas to offer air-conditioning, was demolished in the late 1980s.

    Shake together or blend for 30 seconds 3 ounces each of orange juice, and pineapple juice, 1 1/4 ounces light rum, 1/2 ounce Pimm’s Cup No. 1, 1/4 ounce grenadine, and a dash each of lemon juice, Angostura bitters, and egg white. Serve the drink in a chilled 12-ounce glass. Serves 1.
