Tropical and Fruity Rum Punch + Best places for rum in Anguilla
Imagine you’re on a tropical island, sipping one of these under the warm sun. This fruity rum punch has flavours inspired by the Caribbean: guava, orange and of course, pineapple.
Caribbean Rum Punch
It wouldn’t feel like a week of Caribbean-inspired posts without one featuring rum! And of course, a rum punch is the ultimate must-have when visiting the island. Beware though, this recipe is quite an easy drinker!
Also, I say ‘end the celebrations’ but don’t worry, there’s still going to be a ‘how to eat like an Anguillan’ post coming up + one extra exciting collab with Anguillan blogger, Bikini Sunset. Look out for those in the next couple of days!
I’m not a massive alcohol drinker actually. For one, I think I’m allergic to the sulphites in wine, and so when I do drink, it’ll be rum! I’m not a gin fan either (I KNOW). I think i’d definitely fit in well in the Caribbean! This recipe is so simple, it’ll be ready in 5 and there’s no need to strain or shake, you just need a big jug to put it in.
I’m definitely going to be making this again in the summertime! It’s perfect for garden parties and BBQs!
Remember to drink responsibly!!
Before you head to the recipe, Nori from Anguilla Beaches kindly suggested some of the best places to enjoy rum on the island! Here’s her top choices:
- Nori’s absolute fave is Ocean Echo. Looking at the place, I can see why! The rum punch, known as the ‘Rumzie’ looks AMAZING, as does the food.
- Scilly Cay, although unfortunately closed at the moment due to Hurricane Irma. It looks like such a relaxing spot!
- Ferryboat Inn, a drinking and eating spot located on the beach-front.
- For aged and rare rums, restaurant Hibernia is the spot to try them!
- And of course, Blanchard’s (beach shack and restaurant!)
Nori has two interesting posts with waaaay more information on rum spots, if you’d like to check them out:`
