Jamaican Guinness Punch Recipe

Traditional Jamaican Drinks

If you are looking for a delicious and traditional Jamaican drink, then anything with the word ‘punch’ in the title is sure to be a winner! The term ‘Punch’ refers to a mixed drink of some sort and there are many varieties of this popular drink available to suit all tastes in Jamaica.

Jamaican Guinness Punch is delicious and oh so moreish and is easily one of my all time favourite Jamaican drinks. Sweet, bitter, cool and nourishing at the same time and with that kick of nutmeg and vanilla…. OMG, So good! You have to taste it to know.

Jamaican Guinness Punch Recipe

This is an easy recipe to follow and once you get the hang of it you will be rustling up Jamaican Guinness Punch in no time! There are many methods for making this drink and some of the ingredients can be substituted, or omitted if you prefer, so there are no hard and fast rules.

If I make this drink when I am in London I generally leave out the Lasco (fortified and flavoured milk powder drink) and pour in a can of Dunn’s River Nourishment instead. I have never seen it sold in Jamaica where Suppligen is widely available.

How to Make Jamaican Guinness Punch

First things first, thoroughly wash your hands and scrub underneath your nails if you can. Gather all your ingredients and cooking implements together and put them on the counter top so you have everything within      reach and you will also save time and make it easier for yourself.

You will need:

  • a large jug
  • A grater
  • a measuring cup and teaspoon


  • 1 bottle of Guinness or Dragon Stout
  • 1 Cup Oats
  • 4-5 Cups Water
  • ¼ Cup Condensed Milk
  • 1 tablespoon Vanilla Essence
  • ¼ teaspoon of grated nutmeg
  • ½ Cup Lasco – Peanut or Vanilla flavour is good
  • Or, 1 can of Nourishment / Nutriment / Suppligen


  • Add the oats to a jug and pour over the water – you can blend the oats if you wish
  • Add the Lasco and mix into the water
  • Add the Guinness to the water
  • Add the Vanilla Essence
  • Add the Condensed Milk slowly and check for sweetness
  • Grate the nutmeg and stir ingredients together
  • Chill in the fridge before serving
  • Pour into long glasses (the bigger the better!)
  • Enjoy!

Top Tip!

My best advice when making this recipe is make sure you make plenty, as one glass is never enough!


Serves 4 people, although 2 adults could easily drink it!

Takes about 10 minutes to prepare and another 20-30 minutes to chill to perfection
