Taste the flavor of Caribbean Soul this holiday season!




Most Caribbean countries have their version of eggnog. Puerto Rico has Coquito, the Dominican Republic has Ponché.

The Trinidadian version is called Ponche‐de‐Crème, and is a thick, creamy concoction, made with Black Label Rum and... well, we canʹt give everything away!

Caribbean Soulʹs version is rum‐free, but youʹre welcome to add your own!

Try with our delicious Black Cake and Pastelles, or as an after‐dinner cocktail.

We guarantee, it’s a sure‐fire way to get the holiday spirit!

Ponche‐de‐Crème will be available at Caribbean Soul for a limited time this holiday season.

Spicy Mulled Wine

The word mulled literally means heated and spiced. Mulled Wines are traditional primarily in countries with cooler climates. During the holidays they lend to a more festive atmosphere.

Mulled Wine recipes are as varied as Sangria. Caribbean Soul will offer two options for mulled wine over the holiday season: A white wine version made with Cabernet Sauvignon spiced with cloves, cinnamon and brown sugar, and a red wine version made with Shiraz and spiced with cinnamon, anise and orange.

Our catering consultant can offer you a taste during your consultation to help you decide your favorite. Call Nichole at 515-BK-SOULE to schedule an appointment.

Rum Cake...  Intoxicating!

…Okay, maybe not, but the fragrant scent of fruits soaked in rum is like no other!

Rum Cake (or Black Cake) is traditional in the West Indian community for special events, including weddings, birthdays, christenings, and always on Christmas.

Unlike American fruit cakes, theyʹre customarily soaked in dark rum; a good way to guarantee that it wonʹt be re‐gifted!

Black cake (absent the rum... but still delicious!) will be available for a limited time this holiday season at Caribbean Soul!

Trinidadian Pastelles

Pastelles are traditional in Trinidad & Tobago during the holiday season, but are enjoyed all year long. A Spanish dish not common to many Caribbean cultures, this delicious appetizer was bought to Trinidad by neighboring Venezuelans. (Venezuela lies just 7 miles off the coast of Trinidad.)

Made with savory ground beef or turkey and seasoned with a myriad of spices, raisins and olives for a sweet and sour contrast, Pastelles are encased in a cornmeal crust and steamed in banana leaves.

They may appear to be unusually exotic, but their taste is definitely not one that must be acquired.

Pastelles are delicious and virtually irresistible!

Caribbean Soul's Signature Winter Sangria


The drink Sangria originated in Spain and was made popular in the U.S. at the 1964 Worldʹs Fair. Although traditional Spanish Sangria consists of red wine, brandy, and fruit, the variety of styles and flavors are almost infinite!

Although named in Spain, the actual drink has been around for centuries. In fact, it was the focal point for most European parties for centuries, prepared in a punch bowl and served with a ladle.

The beauty of Sangria is that the recipes can be modified for any occasion. Citrus Sangria is popular during hot, sunny days, while red with dark berries are perfect for a wintry celebration.

Sangria can be made in any number of styles from spicy to mild to rich to bubbly; with red wine, white wine, and even sparkling wine. The perfect addition to every celebration that is loved by just about everyone!



A Holiday Party at Soule!

The wind chaffed her face in the short walk from the subway to the restaurant.


She opened the door to Soulé and the warmth was welcoming, intensified by the festive décor and the friendly young lady who greeted her.

She had selected the cocktail party preclude to her company’s holiday dinner, and a selection of drinks awaited her. Surveying the selection, she wavered between a glass of warm mulled wine, spicy sorrel wine, or fruity white sangria.

“Have some mulled wine to warm you,” advised her hostess, and she readily agreed, taking a sip and feeling the heat permeate her core. Her face flushed, as she turned to assess the layout for dinner; two long tables on either side, with red candle centerpieces circled with poinsettias, wine glasses at every place setting, and an elegant buffet table at one end of the room.

Her coworkers had already begun to arrive and were sipping cocktails and sampling the hor d’ourves readily available at the buffet table. She helped herself to a pastelle, amazed at its unique flavor.

She smiled, pleased with herself; the entire dinner, including cocktail hour and hor d’ourves, and she had remained well within her company’s budget.

The night was already proving to be amazing!
