Although this recipe for Guinness punch would possibly recall to mind a festive Irish pub, it harkens again to a favourite beverage on a number of Caribbean islands through the interval of British colonization, and connects on to activist and cookbook creator Lelani Lewis’ Irish-Grenadian heritage. As she notes in her guide Code Noir: Afro-Caribbean Tales and Recipes, within the seventeenth century, Guinness determined to export a beer that would survive the Transatlantic journey to the Caribbean to serve the Irish contract laborers within the area. This combination of sturdy stout beer, creamy, candy condensed milk, and a touch of cinnamon and nutmeg is a pleasant fusion of flavors, and only one culinary instance of the collision of many cultures and cuisines throughout the Caribbean. 

Whereas Lewis likes to organize the punch with Guinness’ West Indies Porter, it may also be made with any Guinness stout or porter of selection. Overproof rum is a high-alcohol model of the Caribbean’s staple spirit—just a little goes a great distance, so don’t overdo it.
