When the British conquered the island of Jamaica 200 years ago, they made friends with this liquor, distilled from sugar cane. Nowadays, rum is produced in all countries growing sugar cane between the tropic of Cancer and the tropic of Capricorn. Posted for ZWT5, taken from "Dine Around The World". Preparation time does not include chilling time.


  1. Peel orange, mango, banana and papaya, remove seeds, and cut into very small dice.
  2. Mix pineapple juice, rum, molasses, and the juice from the limes, and add vanilla pods.
  3. Add diced fruit.
  4. Place drink in fridge for several hours.
  5. Do not forget to remove vanilla pods before serving.
  6. Serve ice cold in long glasses, and enjoy!

Very good indeed! The only thing I omitted was the papaya as I didn't have one. I used bourbon vanilla beans and I couldn't resist, I had to extract it. Loved the vanilla flavoring in this. We also enjoyed reading your intro on the history of rum. Thanks so much for sharing the recipe. :)

Oh BOY this was just delicious, the vanilla just lifts it into something special. I used Mount Gay rum which is about normal strength and it did pack a punch. Made for ZWT5 thanks for posting Karen

This was a lovely drink. Wow, does it pack a punch, even with all the lovely fruit in it. Made as written and chilled overnight in the fridge... for a wonderful experience. For me the predominate flavor was the molasses; that said the vanilla and the fruit marry well with it. Thank you for sharing this flavor drink. Made for Beverage Anyone? Tag Game.
