A Taste of the Caribbean

If you're like me, you might be wishing you could just pack your bags and head to a gorgeous tropical island in the Caribbean for a while right about now.

Since we can't do that just yet due to COVID-19, I thought it'd be fun to bring a little of the Caribbean to you at home with a delicious jerk chicken recipe (yum!!) - it has the perfect smoky flavor for a summer cookout. And, I've also included a video on how to make Jamaica's famous Bob Marley cocktail to really help you feel like you're in the Caribbean : )

Jerk Chicken Caribbean EverAfter Travel Agency


If you've ever been to the Caribbean, then you already know how fabulous jerk chicken is!

But, if you haven't had the chance to try it yet, let me tell you a little more about it.

"Jerk" is a style of cooking native to Jamaica where the meat (typically chicken or pork) is dry-rubbed or marinated with spices like: allspice berries, scotch bonnet peppers, thyme, garlic and ginger.

The traditional jerk style of cooking involves cooking the meat over wood from Pimento trees, but you can get similar results with your oven or grill at home.

Named after the famous Jamaican musician, this refreshing cocktail is a favorite among those visiting the Caribbean.

So, there you have it. Crank some reggae music, enjoy some good food and drink, and transport yourself to the beautiful Caribbean for an evening.

Let me know if you give these recipes a try - I'd love to hear how they turn out!
