Mount Gay Rum Punch Recipe

Rum is thought to have originated on the West Indian island of Barbaods. While there, whether you’re dining beside British society figures at distinguished, Zagat-rated restaurants like the Cliff, Champers and Daphne’s, or just kicking back at one of the many roadside, pastel-colored chattel shops, chances are you’ll find Rum Punch, the island’s signature cocktail, on the menu. The following recipe is from Barbados’s Mount Gay Rum Factory, whose rum is available in liquor stores throughout the world. Chances are it will also cure the pain.
