Some days one must simply take the advice of Elizabeth Taylor who said,
"Pour yourself a drink, put on some lipstick and pull yourself together."
With the British summer weather being something of a disappointment so far, some days you have to simply make your own sunshine and there's no better way to add a little summer in your day than a Bajan Rum Punch.
The Punch recipe is simple with only 5 ingredients; Punch coming from the word 'Panch' which literally means 'five', and Bajans have a poem to remember the recipe...
"One of Sour, Two of Sweet, Three of Strong and Four of Weak.
A dash of Bitter and a sprinkle of Spice served well chilled with plenty of ice."
Method & Recipe:
1 measure of Lime juice
2 measures simple sugar syrup
3 measures Dark Caribbean Rum
4 Measures water - or a tropical fruit juice to taste.
Mix together well and pour over crushed ice.
Now, sit back, relax and think of the sands, seas and skies of Barbados!
