This Punch is served everywhere you go here on the Island during the Christmas season. I have been visiting/vacationing in Jamaica for about 30 years and for the last 10 years have lived in Ocho Rios for the winter months (December through April). It certainly beats the cold and dreary winter months in Toronto (Canada). I am sharing this recipe(given to all the Chowhounds by my helper, Miss Jennifer, who lives in a small town outside of Ocho Rios called Parrytown) . We wish all a very merry Christmas and if you drink enough punch you could get quite merry indeed!
NOTE: Fresh Sorrel should be generally available in West Indian Stores
in North America at this time of year (imported for Christmas). I understand that this can be made with ‘dried’ Sorrel but I’m sorry I don’t have the ‘variables’ for using it dried.
