The Caribbean’s Easiest Rum Punch Recipe

The Caribbean’s Easiest Rum Punch Recipe

I spent a week in Nevis recently, a magical trip that revolved around two resorts and imbibing at least that many tumblers of rum punch a day. After all, every hotel seemed to have their signature libation, and it would have been rude to refuse them, no? While they were […]

The Caribbean’s Best Sangria

The Caribbean’s Best Sangria

“I’m gonna need a nap,” I think, as a comforting warmth courses through my body and my head starts to feel heavy and list ever so slightly to the side. No, I’m not in the middle of a soothing massage. I’m fully clothed and upright – well, sorta. The cause […]

What’s better than rum punch? Rum punch savored on a boat that’s spiriting you away to a luxury resort on an enchanting Caribbean island. And if that island happens to be Nevis and the resort happens to be the Four Seasons, well, there’s really nothing better than that. The potent […]

Grand Cayman’s Coolest Cocktail

On the northern tip of Grand Cayman, the Wreck Bar at Rum Point is the mecca for thirsty cruise-ship day-trippers (and on Sundays, a local boating crowd) in search of surf, sand and slurps. It’s also the home of the Mudslide, the signature libation that many claim was invented right […]

Martinique’s Potent Punch

Martinique’s Potent Punch

Move over mojito, there’s a new cocktail in town. It’s called ti punch but this ain’t no long, sweet and fruity umbrella-topped rum concoction. This is hard core, baby!  On a trip to Martinique last summer I had a chance to try the national tipple, and while it’s made from […]

The Cocktail Every Shopper Needs

The Cocktail Every Shopper Needs

As any retail maven knows, shopping is hard work. Pounding the pavement, wrestling the crowds, combing clothing racks … it takes real stamina. Which is why it’s prudent to back away from the bargains every now and then for a refreshing pause. Duck into a café and savor a coffee, […]
