Description

After a recent trip to the Carribbean, I’ve fallen in love with this quick Rum Punch recipe. It’s an easy rum cocktail that can be made single serve or by the pitcher, making it an excellent recipe to share at BBQs all summer long! This version is made with a blend of fruit juices, white rum, and grenadine for that signature pink color.


Ingredients

Units Scale

For a Pitcher:

  • 750 ml white rum
  • 1 cup pineapple or mango juice
  • 1 cup orange juice
  • 3/4 cup lime juice
  • 3/4 cup grenadine or strawberry syrup
  • sliced fresh fruit (sliced strawberries, oranges, pineapple, and/or limes)
  • optional: 1 tsp ground nutmeg

For a Single Serve:

  • 2 oz white rum
  • 1 oz pineapple or mango juice
  • 1 oz orange juice
  • 1/2 oz lime juice
  • 1/2 oz grenadine or strawberry syrup
  • sliced fresh fruit (sliced strawberries, oranges, pineapple, and/or limes)
  • optional: a pinch of ground nutmeg

Instructions

To Make a Pitcher:

  1. Combine all ingredients. In a large pitcher or punch bowl, combine the rum, fruit juices, grenadine or strawberry syrup, fresh nutmeg, and fresh fruit (if you want to mix it into the punch).
  2. Mix & serve. Stir everything together to combine. Chill until ready to serve, and serve over ice with fresh fruit and a dusting of nutmeg on top! Please remember to always drink responsibly.

To Make a Single Serving:

  1. Combine liquids in a cocktail shaker. Combine the rum, fruit juices, grenadine or strawberry syrup in a cocktail shaker over ice. Add the nutmeg here too, if using. 
  2. Shake well. Shake everything for at least 90 seconds, or until the shaker feels cold to the touch.  
  3. Serve. Pour the contents of the cocktail shaker into a glass over ice.
  4. Garnish & enjoy. Garnish with freshly sliced fruit and a dusting of nutmeg. Enjoy & please remember to always drink responsibly.

Notes

  • Mix fresh fruit into the punch or leave it out and use as a topping/garnish
  • You can also use frozen fruit if fresh fruit isn’t an option
  • Add white coconut rum (Malibu) if desired (1 cup for a pitcher and 1 oz for a single serve cocktail)
