  • Punch a Creme (a Christmas favourite)


    3 eggs
    1 wineglass rum
    1/2 tin (175g or 7oz size) evaporated milk
    Piece of orange or lime rind
    1 tin (325g or 12oz size) condensed milk
    1 teaspoon bitters


    Beat eggs well with the rind. Remove rind. Add milk. Stir well. Add rum and bitters and mix thoroughly. Bottle. Chill and shake well before serving. Makes 12-16 servings in liqueur glasses.

    This is a popular Christmas drink.

  • Caribbean Cocktail


    1/4 cup rum
    2 tablespoons lime juice
    1 cup fresh pineapple juice

    1 tablespoon caster sugar
    soda water

On a warm day, which is pretty much every day in Barbados, a sweet snow-cone is must have!
