Barbadian Rum Punch

READY IN: 5mins
Recipe by Karen Elizabeth

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.

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. :)
