Throughout the Caribbean and Latin America countries, ‘Ponche’ is well-known and often homemade. Each family has its own special variation of the recipe which can be served on any occasion. The recipes have been handed down from generation to generation, becoming entwined with the history of the families of the islands.
In 1942, Don Jaime A. J. Sprock, a Caribbean merchant, ventured to Cuba where he sampled and collected a wide variety of homemade Caribbean cream liqueurs, called ‘Ponche’. From these tastings and after much research, he combined the most authentic Caribbean ingredients into one recipe which he called ‘Ponche Kuba’.
