From mulled wine to hot toddys, Christmas wouldn’t be complete without festive drinks, of which Caribbean sorrel punch is undoubtedly one of the most delicious! Made with Tropical Sun Food’s dried sorrel, its unmistakable vibrant magenta colour gives it a Christmassy glow and its tart and tangy flavour perfectly compliments the dark rum that warms you up from the inside out. Perfect hot or over ice, served with a slice of Caribbean Christmas Rum Cake!
