Recipe by WizzyTheStick
A popular drink all over the French West Indies. This apéritif is consumed on a daily basis. Ti is patois for petit which means small. However don't let the size fool you it packs quite a punch! Ça chauffe le coeur et les entrailles! You'll speak French for sure! With only three ingredients, it couldn't be any simpler but I implore you to use a good quality rum.

Now this is a strong drink. I used torbino sugar and a nice caribbean rum, it gave it a nice flavour. A sipping drink indeed, just what I needed...two and I wouldn't have made it anywhere. You can really taste the alcohol, it warms you up very quickly. Thanks for sharing.
- 2 ounces white rum (50 to 55 proof or dark rum from 43 proof)
- 1 teaspoon brown sugar (if using dark rum use a little less sugar. You will have to experiment to find what suits you) or 1 ounce cane sugar syrup
- 1 lime
Directions See How It's Made
- Pour the syrup or sugar in a glass.
- Squeeze half of lime into a glass. After squeezing go ahead and drop it into the glass. Cut a slice from the unused half and use to garnish the rim of the glass.
- Add the rum and swirl the glass slowly with love.
- Breathe in the sweet perfume which arises and let yourself soak up the flavours of Les Antilles.
- Your punch is almost ready, all that is left now is to sip it slowly among friends and -- with moderation! Seriously one of these is enough if you don't intend to be comatose before the meal.
