The Kitchen’s Rum Punch


rum punchDrinking rum during a snow storm has two effects on me. I’ll either start scanning through Travelocity and look into Caribbean vacations, which I hopefully won’t purchase while drinking. Or, I’ll put on my favorite Hawaiian shirt and go play in the snow. The latter is obviously the most cost effective. Regardless, drinking a rum punch during the winter always seems to bring a smile to my face, remembering summer’s great memories and getting ready to have an epic ski day. With all the snow we have been getting dumped on lately why not make a rum drink tonight and look forward to the awesome snow that you’ll get to ski at JHMR all weekend? This rum punch recipe comes from The Kitchen and is promised to delight. Make it tonight and enjoy your Thirsty Thursday!
