A Knockout Punch

September 27, 2016

           While in Galveston recently, I went on a quest to find the perfect pirates’ punch. Although pirates have a reputation of just drinking rum straight (usually from a rather questionable-looking bottle), I’d like to think that when entertaining, the handsome rogue Jean Lafitte would have stepped it up a notch.

           After extensive research at my favorite seaside haunts, talking with their mixologists and conducting my own experiments, I think I’ve hit on the perfect recipe. I was assisted in my mission by my niece, Edel Overcash. This wasn’t the sort of task one should undertake without the help of a college senior. Enjoy!


Lafitte’s Best

½ cup Captain Morgan Spiced Rum

1/8 cup Dekuyper Crème de Banana

1/8 cup Dekuyper Peach Schnapps

1 cup V8 Splash Island Strawberry

1/3 cup Dole pineapple juice


Stir it all together in a pretty glass pitcher and serve over ice. Be creative and garnish the glass with sliced pineapple or a strawberry. Enjoy, but please don’t be an idiot. Drunken swashbucklers often found themselves shanghaied.
