Despite our differences in many areas, kitchens are places where we all unite. I love being in kitchens, creating different foods, and connecting with lots of people. Being a restaurateur (Mambo 64!), food writer, event planner, caterer, cooking teacher, educator, traveller—and mom—has given me plenty of opportunities to log kitchen hours as home chef, host, and guest. Though this blog was born in my "cocina," it shares a collection of tales about life both inside and outside of my kitchen!

Sumptuous Sips: Planter's Punch
Sometimes you want something rum-ish:rum-based, tropical, kind of dreamy…Planter's
Punch can fit that bill.
Recently I have had the opportunity to sample Alvin's punch--(that would be Alvin of Alvin and friends--whom I wrote about last month!) and wow, that is magical stuff...and honestly, it would be my first choice. However, sometimes I can't get out, and since Alvin's recipe is top top secret, I have to recreate my own! Honestly, everyone has their own interpretation. This is a variation
on one I published in Calypso Coolers. Of course you can vary it according to your taste and liking, but this one can satisfy your need-for-the-tropics craving... ¡Salud! Happy weekend! (And ooh--for more sumptuous sips, great fiesta recipes, and a fun night out of cooking, cavorting and more, join me on April 26th at Don Coqui's where you'll be making a lovely array of springtime, Latin-infused tapas!)
