HOLIDAY GIFT GUIDE 2013: Jamaican Rum Punch with Diplomatico Anejo

If you've never had Jamaican Rum Punch, it's a really easy recipe sure to bring Island happiness to all of your guests.  Funny thing, Rum Punch day is celebrated in September but Rum Punch is served mostly during Christmastime.  One of my friends recently returned from a trip to the Caribbeans and she was raving about this rum punch she had so we tried to recreate the recipe.

A couple of months ago, I received a sample of Diplomatico Anejo Rum as part of a Rum Punch Day campaign.  The sample was about 6-8 oz. and just enough for about 4 glasses of rum punch.  Not enough for a punch bowl full of Jamaican Rum Punch but just enough for a couple of the divas to have a taste.  Road trip!!!  Well, it wasn't really a road trip, it was more of a 10-minute drive to the local wine and spirits store.  I asked the clerk his thoughts on Diplomatico Anejo and he complimented my taste and also shed a little light on Venezuelan rums.  

After our visit, the divas and I headed back to my house to experiment with a few recipes we found online.

Diplomatico Anejo is a delicious flavor base  to Rum Punch or any other tropical beverages because it has sweetness of raisins, caramel and hints of cocoa, coffee and a hint of spice.  Ssssssmmmmmooooooooooottttttthhhhhh...

Hello Spring!

Jeepers! It's January Hop

Happy New Year!

What better way to kick off the new year than with a giveaway! I am so excited to join The Mommy Island, The Kids Did It and 90+ other fab blogs in the first big giveaway hop of 2018!

Here’s your chance to start the new year off with a win. One lucky Three Boys and an Old Lady blog reader will receive a $15 Walmart eGift card. $10 may not seem like a lot but it’s enough to stock up on some last minute Christmas clearance gifts. Trust me. I bought a 6’ Christmas tree WITH lights, 2 animal massagers, 3 Jelly Belly BeanBoozled Jelly Beans Mystery Bean Dispenser, Christmas cards and wrapping paper less than $20 during an after Christmas Walmart shopping trip.

I was searching for some cough syrup when my friend’s kid spotted the Jelly Belly BeanBoozled Jelly Beans Mystery Bean Dispenser on sale for 50 cents. What a steal! The regular price is $10 so to find them on sale for 50 cents was a deal. We cleared the shelves.

A few rows down we spotted some animal neck massager…
