Tiki Bars – Latitude 29

And so finally I got to go the Latitude 29! I´ve been waiting since they opened with great anticipation and (high) expectancy…..well…I try to not have too high expectations whatever it is, better to have an open mind, but with this one i`s a bit different….because this is the BUM`s place….this is the man […]

Real McCoy 12 Year Old Rum!

From Barbados…

When a rum is distinctive and genuine, carrying great flavors it makes my rum palate sing and if it´s backed up by a really interesting history it gets even better. Real McCoy is such a rum and i have reviewed the 5 year old rum before, now it´s time for the 12 […]

UK Rumfest 2014 – Let there be RUM!!! (part two)

Exciting rums…interesting (and tasty) seminars, good rum friends, carnival music and good food – that`s the UK Rumfest!(and in England good food to me spells either Caribbean food or Fish and Chips (with extra hotsauce) and there was Caribbean food in the venue and upstairs in the pub they had the most delicious and […]

I was waiting with great excitement for the tasting and launch of the Pineapple Rum Stiggin’s Fancy by Plantation Rum – which I need to make it clear right away, is NOT for sale…..because this rum was […]

Drinks with Honey Cream Mix

Browsing through Don the Beachcomber´s “Little Hawaiian Tropical Drink Book” it´s clear that Don used a lot of honey cream mix. Trader Vic also used it but it seems to me that Don used it more. I tried it the first time many years ago ( in 2007) when i tried to make Don`s […]

Black River Punch

Here´s another interesting cocktail i stumbled upon, the Black River Punch.

This cocktail was at first an un-namd Planter´s Punch variant. The Planter´s Punch is as we know based on the old rhyme – 1 of sour, 2 of sweet, 3 of strong, 4 of weak…and with that formula you can make all kinds […]

Guest Post – Hemmingway’s Rum Punch

In 1996 Terry Drummey opened Hemmingway’s beachfront restaurant at the Sands resort at Grace Bay, on Providenciales, at that time a little-known island floating in the Caribbean beyond Cuba and the Bahamas. More than a decade later, as the Turks and Caicos has attracted more and more visitors, Hemminway’s has become the heart of […]

ST GEORGE´S RUM PUNCH

Welcome to the world of Rum Punch!

Here we got a real old school Caribbean Rum Punch from the Grenada containing nutmeg syrup. And it was the nutmeg syrup that picked my attention since i never done that before and i like nutmeg, it adds a very pleasant flavor to drinks and food.

I`m […]
