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...
