It’s only the beginning of May but already the Summer is fast approaching. With our weather already soaring into the low 90’s (93 degrees F yesterday), thoughts of tropical vacations flood my mind. The Caribbean is my favorite retreat and the islands are, if nothing else, known for their great variety of rums. My husband and I stock up each time we go so we can make cocktails like these when we get back to the mainland.
Island music, the gentle breezes of Summer and this Caribbean Rum Punch cocktail make for a perfect trio. However, be warned! This cocktail is strong but is deceptively smooth and satisfying without an overpowering taste of alcohol. We always try to limit ourselves with these as they do go down quite easily. 😉
As always, please drink responsibly.
