Remedies from Round Hill

Overwhelming headlines, closure notices and travel restrictions have become the new normal in recent weeks. While we comply to the guidelines to minimize the spread of this new pandemic, absence from luxury island living can prove to be fatal to a vacationist’s well- being. 

To alleviate the symptoms of the travel bug, here are our top remedies to keep the worries away and a little piece of Round Hill close to home:

Make Yourself a Rum Punch

While this alcohol solution is no cure for COVID- 19, we know this DIY recipe of a sweet island favourite is sure to get you in the right spirit no matter the occasion. Cheers!

Simple Rum Punch 

Ingredients:

  • ¾ oz Tommy Bahama White Rum or Bacardi White Rum
  • ¾ oz Coruba Dark Rum
  • ½ oz Lime Juice
    ¼ oz Clear Syrup
  • 1 oz Pineapple Juice or Orange Juice
  • ¼ oz Jalapeno Pepper

Method:

  • Mix everything together in a pitcher
  • Taste and adjust
  • Place in the refrigerator to chill. Fun fact: Aging improves the taste of rum punch so we recommend refrigerating for at least 2 hours
  • Serve cold over ice
  • Garnish with pineapple wedge, lime slice and maraschino cherry

Watch A Movie

Gather the gang  and enjoy the melodies of the classic musical, The Sound of Music which was written by our original owner of Villa 12, Oscar Hammerstein – who met Maria von Trapp at Round Hill. We also recommend the 90’s romantic- drama, How Stella Got Her Groove Back featuring the star- studded cast of Angela Bassett, Whoopi Goldberg, Taye Diggs and many more. The FOX 20th Century production was filmed at Villa 11.
