"I made a double batch, and it was a huge hit at my party. I used pretty good rums, which I'm sure helped: Vizcaya Cristal, 7 year Flor de Caña, and Blue Chair Bay coconut rum," says Carina.

"So good! Made me feel like I was right back on the beach in Negril. I used regular white rum in place of the 151....but otherwise followed the recipe exactly. Perfect paired with jerk marinated chicken and Caribbean rice & beans. Will definitely be making again," raves brooke138.
