This week: The Kingston Rum Punch at The Breadfruit's Rum Bar
The Valley's Jamaican food staple, The Breadfruit, just punched another staple in Phoenix culture. This time in the form of a rum bar. The restaurant's new neighboring addition, named Rum Bar, is yep, you guessed it, a bar that specializes in premium aged rums and authentic Caribbean cocktail concoctions and in turn specializes in winning our hearts.

Owner Dwayne Allen's Kingston Rum Punch wont just give you a little taste of Jamaica; It'll straight up punch you in the mouth. The key here is hand-squeezed pineapple juice. Yeah, mon, hand squeezed. Rum Bar isn't about expediency, it's about experience.
