WHAT'S IN THE BOX


MAUBY


A classic Caribbean drink. The concentrate is made from mauby bark that has been boiled with spices and seeped for a few hours then diluted and sweetened with sugar. Add mixed essence or Angostura bitters for enhanced flavoring and serve cold...the colder the better!

HERBAL TEA


Herbal (“herb” or “bush”) tea in the Caribbean is thought to be both a calming and comforting drink and has been for generations considered a cure all for any ailment from headaches to stomach aches to stress. It is made by brewing any combination of spices like turmeric root, ginger, cinnamon, bay leaf, clove and orange peel.

PEANUT PUNCH


Creamy, milk based punches are another popular Caribbean drink, with peanut punch being one of the most popular. Punches are also a popular street food. Made from peanut butter, milk and spices this classic Caribbean drink is a must try!

COCOA DRINK


Cocoa “tea” is another of those warm, comforting Caribbean drinks. It is not a tea but actually a cocoa drink made from boiling and simmering cocoa and spices. It’s a great breakfast drink and was also traditionally drank in the evenings with biscuits and tea. In this box, try this more instant quick and easy option for a chocolate drink.
