Rum Punch
Rum Punch can refer to pretty much any recipe that includes rum, citrus, sugar, occasionally bitters and tropical fruits, and is served in a punch bowl. As such, there's no "true" Rum Punch recipe, but this one is simple to make and will be a fan-favorite at your next party. This recipe makes about 12-15 drinks, depending on the size of cups you use (we recommend small ones, 8 oz or less), so you'll need to scale it up for a larger gathering.

Rum Punch Ingredients

750 ml (one bottle) light rum
750 ml (one bottle) dark rum
24 oz fresh lime juice
8 oz pineapple juice
8 oz rich simple syrup (2:1)
A few dozen bruised mint leaves for garnish

How to make a Rum Punch

  1. Fill a medium bowl (plastic, or something else that won't explode in the freezer) with water and freeze.
  2. Add all ingredients to a large bowl and stir well.
  3. Refrigerate the punch until ready to serve.
  4. About 30 minutes before serving, remove the ice from the bowl and place in a large punch bowl.
