Drink Recipe: A Rum Punch from Couples Resorts
Barbados is a small sovereign island country in the Lesser Antilles, 166 miles and divided into 11 parishes, with a population of approximately 290,000 people. Known to have the oldest distilled spirit, it is rich in culture with almost perfect weather year-round thus making it the ultimate all inclusive Barbados vacation for you and your loved one.
With over 1500 Rum Shops, it’s no wonder why “Bajans”, the natives of Barbados, are so relaxed in nature. Rum as with any alcohol, needs to be consumed in moderation, however it is said to be beneficial in lowering your blood pressure and relieving stress. “Bajans” ensure that they include it when they get together for their favorite pastime of “liming”; which is a leisure activity entailing the sharing of food and drink, the exchange of tall stories, jokes and anecdotes etc.
We share with you below how to make the “Jamaican” version of Bajan Rum Punch, a very popular drink among islanders, made from Aged Barbados rum which you will be sure to find in your all inclusive bars in Barbados as we continue the over 300 year rum tradition if the island.
