Poncha da Madeira

Do you want to feel like you are on Madeira Island? If yes, taste this Poncha, the typical alcoholic drink of this Portuguese Island.

Here is my recipe for 2 persons.


– fresh juice of 1 big orange
– fresh juice of 1 big lemon (or 2 limes)
– 3 teaspoon of honey
– 40 cl of white (Madeira or any) rum
– 40 cl of still water

Stir the ingredients well and enjoy the drink!

And do not forget to obtain this special wooden mixing tool – a type of muddler (called mexelote or caralhinho) – next time when you visit this beautiful island to take it home with you for your next homemade Poncha drink!
