How to Make Caribbean Rum Punch with Pineapple and Orange Juice

Save

Start to Finish: 10 minutes

Servings: 6

Creating a punch out of plain and flavored rums, and pineapple and orange juices -- one that is dressed up with grenadine and fresh lime juice -- makes a luscious, tropical libation that works well for an outdoor summer party. Grenadine -- a pomegranate-infused simple sugar syrup -- gives the cocktail its blushing hue. While honey, nutmeg and angostura bitters add a depth of flavor to this fruity concoction; for the best results, use freshly squeezed lime and orange juices.

This recipe has been adapted from Jamaican Rum Punch from Drinks Mixer and Malibu Rum Punch from Mademan.

Punch

Ingredients

  • ½ cup fresh lime juice
  • 2 tablespoons honey

  • ¼ teaspoon nutmeg
  • ½ cup grenadine
  • 2 cups white or dark rum
  • 1 cup coconut-flavored rum
  • 2 ½ cups pineapple juice
  • 2 ½ cups freshly squeezed orange juice
  • Angostura bitters

Directions

Add the lime juice, honey and nutmeg to a wide punch bowl, or large pitcher. Stir well to dissolve the honey and spice. Pour the grenadine, rum, coconut-flavored rum and the pineapple and orange juices into the bowl or pitcher. Stir the ingredients well to incorporate.

Fill six 12-ounce glasses with ice. If using a pitcher, pour the cocktail into the individual glasses. If using a punch bowl, use a ladle to transfer the cocktail to the glasses.

Add 2 dashes of bitters to each glass and lightly stir, then garnish with a fruit skewer.
