The taste alone will fool you. You will think you are just enjoying a fruit drink…and before you know, it creeps up on you. This one is not for the faint of heart…so drink wisely here’s the recipe.

 

 

Sour Sop Drink

To make it, all you need is a simple sour sop fruit…follow this directions and you are set to enjoy one of the best kept Jamaican drinks secret.

 

Jamaican Sorrel
Jamaican sorrelHmmm! I want some right now! In Jamaica we drink this mostly during Christmas…but you know what? Everyday is Christmas for me.

I can’t wait ’til December to roll around – but in the meantime where ever I can find Sorrel, I find it! Not only for the refreshing taste, but also for the herbal remedy.

Exactly what the Doctor ordered for refreshment and good health. A drink a day, will definitely keep him away! But you don’t have to take my word for it! try it for yourself! 

Jamaican Ginger Beer

For that very reason, I always make sure I have some ginger “inna my house” or somewhere close by.

Nope! I cannot live in the house without it! It wouldn’t be wise…and here’s your chance to enjoy the same benefits.

Guiness Stout
Guiness stoutFor a long time, I thought guiness was made in Jamaica. But It’s not!

It is so popular on the island, that we have found a way to extract energetic benefits from it…and we call it the “strong back” juice.

It is this simple. When you feel overworked and tired, this is the perfect drink for you. It will revitalize you and get you going again in no time. click for the recipe
