Curacao Punch

Curacao Punch is a cocktail that comes from Harry Johnson's New and Improved Bartender's Manual (1882). Dale DeGroff, one of the most famous barmen in the world and author of The Craft of the Cocktail (Clarkson Potter, 2002), holds this to be his favorite forgotten potation.


  • 1/2 tablespoon (7 ml) sugar

(This indulged the major nineteenth-century sweet tooth-alter to taste.)

  • 2 or 3 dashes fresh lemon juice-- (talk) 18:06, 22 October 2011 (UTC)

(More of this can also compensate for the sweetness.)

  • 1 ounce (1/4 gill, 3 cl) soda water
  • 1 ounce (1/4 gill, 3 cl) brandy (Johnson calls for Martell cognac.)
  • 2 ounce (1/2 gill, 6 cl) orange curacao
  • 1 ounce (1/4 gill, 3 cl) Jamaican rum

(Dale suggests a full-bodies style of rum.)


  1. In a bar glass or goblet, combine the sugar, lemon juice, and soda water. Dissolve the sugar, and fill a glass with finely shaved or thoroughly crushed ice. Add the remaining ingredients.
  1. Stir well, and ornament with a variety of fruits.
