ï¿½Nothing captures the taste of the islands quite like Rum Punch. One sip can magically transport you to warm sand, gentle waves, and swaying palm trees. Interestingly, rum punch has been around for nearly 400 years. Legend has it that sailors brought it to England from India in the early 17th century. From there, it made its way to the islands.
