You can’t rum into fall just yet…National Rum Punch Day (today) gives us one last chance to sip on the sweet, spiced, i can’t even taste the alcohol in this, summer cocktail we all love/hate: rum punch.
Quarter + Glory – the 14th Street cocktail bar perfect for first dates and girls brunch alike – has a drink menu and savory bites for all palettes, and a rum punch for all. Served in jumbo fishbowl, serves 4-6 people and quenches that tropical, summer days craving you might be feeling nostalgic for right about now.
Quarter + Glory’s signature rum punch ($40) is made with Brugal Añejo Rum, Giffard Banana de Brasil liquor, pineapple, lime and ginger. It’s garnished with orange wheel slices and tiki umbrellas for Instagram. Disclaimer: I do not love sweet drinks. Confession: I really enjoyed this drink. In one sip on the fun crazy straw, you get a taste of pineapple and rum first, then the spice and gingery acidic balance kick in at the last second to round out your gulp. It’s really good. This is a rum punch that will get you into a lot of trouble.
Quarter + Glory’s menu reads “dignified for the discerning, bold for the courageous”. Much like the cocktail bar’s atmosphere and ambiance, the rum punch is that fruity, colorful drink even your I only drink scotch and stouts friend will sip on.
Also…order the savory, bite sized, Fried Cheese Curds alongside the rum. The salty bite is a perfect complement to the (many) sweet sips you’ll be taking.
