Rum Punch Recipe

Don’t let the ingredients list scare you away from this tasty punch. This is one recipe you don’t want to miss out on! The ingredients you will need are:

  • White rum. Bacardi is our go-to, but you can use whatever white or light rum you prefer.
  • Spiced rum. A rum base flavored with spices like vanilla, cinnamon, cloves, and ginger. A delicious addition to our cozy Salted Caramel Buttered Rum.
  • Coconut rum. Malibu is our favorite, also used in our Malibu Pineapple Margarita recipe.
  • Pineapple rum.
  • Pineapple juice.
  • Mango orange juice. If you can’t find mango orange, just use orange juice.
  • Grenadine.
  • Lime juice. Freshly squeezed is preferred for the most refreshing cocktail, but storebought will also work.
  • Orange. Cut into slices.
  • Pineapple chunks in pineapple juice. You could also use cut-up pineapple and another cup of pineapple juice.
  • Lemon. Cut into slices.

How to Make Rum Punch

Once you have all of the ingredients, making Rum Punch is easy peasy. See the recipe card at the bottom of the page for the full list of ingredients list and measurements.

  • Add all ingredients to a large pitcher, punch bowl, or drink dispenser.
  • Add slices of orange and lemon to the pitcher and stir.
  • Pour into glasses of ice and enjoy!

How to Serve

Serve Rum Punch in glasses over ice to keep it cold and extra refreshing. Fresh fruit slices such as oranges, pineapple, and lemons make the perfect garnish. Freezing your fruit beforehand and then adding it to your rum punch can help keep your drinks cold without watering them down, too!

    Can you make this punch a day ahead of the party… should you leave the cut fruit out until the last minute?
