ALTERNATIVE WAYS TO MAKE RUM PUNCH

While we made this recipe with a number of flavorful ingredients including dark rum, cranberry juice, orange juice, fresh pineapple juice and orange slices, there are a number of ways you can vary this rum punch recipe.   

Here are just a few of the ingredients we like to add or replace in this easy rum punch cocktail. 

  • Apple Cider – we love the way orange juice and cranberry juice taste together, but others love replacing with pineapple juice as an alternative.  
  • Lime Juice & Lime Slices – if you prefer your cocktails with a bit more citrus flavor try adding in a tad bit of lime juice and/or lime slices.  Be sure to add slowly and taste until you’ve reached your desired flavor.  
  • Sparling White Wine – we did not include sparkling white wine this go around, but we have in the past.  It’s a great addition if you like a little fizz.  
  • Regular Dark or White Rum – if you don’t like the taste of dark rum, feel free to replace with a classic white rum choice.  Be sure to taste before serving and add any additional flavors to enhance the recipe. 

 

IS BACARDI RUM PUNCH CARBONATED?

This homemade rum punch cocktail is not carbonated.  However, as we mention above, you are welcome to top with soda water or sparkling wine.  

IS BACARDI RUM PUNCH GLUTEN-FREE?

Made with aged rum and with a hint of smokiness from charred American oak barrels, Bacardi rum is a gluten free rum blended with natural flavors and spices for a bold, yet smooth taste.

INGREDIENTS FOR RUM PUNCH:

  • 2 cups fresh pineapple juice

  • 3/4 cup fresh orange juice

HOW TO MAKE AUTUMN SPICED RUM PUNCH

Making this Bacardi rum punch cocktail is quick and easy and can be made in either a large pitcher or punch bowl.  It’s a great Spring and Summer cocktail if you’re entertaining guests for July 4th, graduation parties, football game days, birthday’s and more.  You’re guests are almost guaranteed to love this rum punch cocktail! 

First, start by chopping up small to medium chunks of your favorite Summer fruit.  We used a variety of fresh pineapple chunks, orange slices, lime wedges and more. 

Fill your pitcher (I used an 80 oz. pitcher) about 20% with your fruit.  Next, add in rum, cranberry juice, orange juice and pineapple juice.  Refreigerate for 1-2 hours before serving.  Once you’re ready to serve, pour the Bacardi rum punch over glasses filled with ice and enjoy! 

This drink recipe will make about 4-6 cocktails depending on the size of your serving glass.  I love doubling this up and serving in a punch bowl when we are entertaining more guests.  

If you’re interested in making this drink recipe a mocktail, simply omit the Bacardi rum.  It makes for a delicious treat for the kids, too!  

If you like a little fizz, you can also top with sparkling white wine once you’re ready to serve.  

Also, I recommend giving the rum punch a taste before refridgerating.  Want it stronger?  Feel free to add an bit more dark rum.  Prefer more of an orange juice taste?  Feel free to add more!  Regardless, this tropical citrus blend cocktail will taste great!
