Yum yum, Jamaican rum!

Last weekend I popped my Notting Hill Carnival cherry and immersed myself in the sounds, colours, and amazing smells of this annual Carribbean and West Indian festival. How could you go to Notting Hill and not spend your day drinking Jamaican Red Stripe Beer, eating jerk chicken and rice and peas, sipping rum punch and drinking coconut water straight from the shell?! Ok so I didnt actually have time for this last one, but I really wanted to!

Whilst we are literally gripping to any last rays of sun peeking through the rain clouds, which I think are loitering over most of Britain, I am inspired to whip up one last summer punch. This deliciously easy recipe for Jamaican Rum Punch from Drinks Mixer will have you feeling the sun on your back and the sand between your toes….we wish!

1 cup Bacardi® 151 rum
1/2 cup Myer’s® dark rum
1/4 cup Malibu® coconut rum
2 1/2 cups pineapple juice
2 1/2 cups orange juice
1/4 cup lime juice
3 tbsp grenadine syrup
Ice cubes
Mix all ingredients together in a blender or punch bowl. Pour over ice cubes in any type of glass. Orange slices to garnish.
Happy end of summer!
