Jamaican Peanut Punch

Written by Winsome Murphy

Peanut Punch is a popular energy drink in Jamaica. It is high in protein.  It is regarded by many Jamaicans as an aphrodisiac.  It is commonly sold by street vendors who may use various “secret” ingredients ( like Irish Moss)  to  stake their  claim of having the  best peanut punch.  Our recipe combines most the popularity used ingredients.
