Rum Punch Drunk

rum punchWhile on vacation in Turks and Caicos we learned that pirates loved punch so much they would barter slaves for a glass. We doubt Calico Jack had an umbrella or a slice of fruit sticking out of his rum punch but we bet you will love this concoction as much as he did. Go ahead, admire the way the fruit and rum combine to give this punch its sunset color. Then toss that umbrella (or orange round) over your shoulder and take a good long sip. Stare hard at the empty white sand beach in front of you and take a second sip. Yes, you are in paradise. Now close your eyes and enjoy the day. We know you’ll thank us later. Though, we’re still waiting for that postcard you promised you sent our way.


Serves 8                                        Total Time: 5 minutes


3.5 cups club soda, chilled

2 cups guava juice, chilled

2 cups light rum

2 tablespoons of lime juice

2 cups of orange juice, chilled

Fresh mint sprigs


Mix all the ingredients in a large pitcher. Chill in the refrigerator for 1 hour or serve immediately over ice in glasses garnished with mint.*

* BT Tip: Add a dash of grenadine to brighten the color and for extra tartness.

  1. I love rum punch! I remember (or should I say I don’t remember a thing) drinking buckets of it when in Barbados. But that was wayyyyy back. These days a pint is all it takes to get me lightheaded! 🙂

  2. I’m a huge fan and had a delightful day in the Caribbean drinking one too many on the beach. The next day was a tad bit rough, but hey, when on holiday it doesn’t really matter.
