This is a classic rum punch recipe that follows the 1 of sour, 2 of sweet, 3 of strong and 4 of weak formula. The way it is served makes it uniquely St Vincent, or maybe it's just that my parents had a fridge that made crushed ice! For whatever reason, this punch makes me think of St Vincent. I told my Caribbean friends that I made a mean rum punch and I don't think they believed me. After tasting it they all decided that we had to use this recipe at our next steelpan performance. (check out my website link for band news.) This makes a very strong drink that gets progressively weaker. See the note at the bottom of the recipe.
