The first time that I’ve had this Jamaican Guinness Punch, it was made by my father-in-law. My husband and I were visiting him and his Trinidadian wife in Florida for the week, and they ensured that our bellies were never empty. We feasted on traditional Jamaican and Trinidadian dishes, which were some of the best that we’ve ever had.
From roti and shrimp curry with curry mango to perfect Jamaican fried dumplings with ackee and saltfish; we were in heaven! My father-in-law is a culinary master and he made sure to show off his skills during our visit. One night he whipped up a batch of Guinness Punch. I was hesitant since I absolutely will not drink stouts, but decided to give it a try and was pleasantly surprised.
It was smooth, thick, creamy and perfectly balanced with the sweet condensed milk and the bitter Guinness. It was very good; I’ve come to realized that once condensed milk in involved there can be no wrong. Quick, simple and damn good…how can you go wrong? While there are versions of this drink that include a raw egg, I decided against it and it’s still tasty. Bottoms up!
