Best Rum Punch Supplies

These are the things I have on hand in my kitchen to make the most delicious and beautiful cocktails:

Paper straws they are so colorful and easy to compost or biodegrade- these are my current favorite with flamingos, pineapple and palm tree designs on them.

  • Whiskey glasses I like to have a cocktail in a whiskey glass, and these heavy base cocktail glasses are perfect.
  • Drink pitcher I think making individual drinks is a pain so I usually make a pitcher and then serve from there. I love this fun pitcher for rum punch- it makes the drink look beautiful.
  • Fun Ice Cube Tray Fun ice cubes are the best! And for this recipe, you could even make red ice cubes and then let the drink change colors as the cubes melt.

Low calorie? Im obsessed with this 100 calorie paloma margarita.

Anyway- heres the easy recipe:

Homemade Fruit Punch Ingredients:

  • Cranberry Juice- This is going to be the base for your punch. Pick a variety that is good, in your opinion.
  • Pineapple Juice- If you can find pineapple coconut, that is our favorite. It can be tricky to find, but we occasionally see it at Trader Joes!
  • Orange Juice- Fresh is best, but you could also go for a more quality brand like Simply Orange.
  • Lime Juice- Fresh squeezed makes all the difference. In a pinch, you can use the bottled variety.
  • Ginger Ale- This is an optional ingredient, but adds a fun fizzy finish.
  • Fresh Fruit- For garnish you can add slices of strawberries, oranges, limes, or any fresh fruit!

Green Apple + Tequila

When figuring out how to make party punch, its always good to experiment. We found green apple flavored Kool-Aid at the store, and decided to give it a try. The flavor and color are reminiscent of sweet and sour mix, so tequila is the perfect companion. Aside from the fun your guests will have making jokes about the effects of drinking something bright green, the unmistakable tequila and fruity Kool-Aid flavors mix well, and arent too far off from the apple margaritas you find in some restaurants. You can go weak or strong with this one, but you want to keep it really cold, so use lots of ice. This easy party punch is also great to throw in the blender with some ice, and mix up a frosty frozen drink.

You Can Also Make This Hawaiian Punch Without Alcohol For The Kids

Often I like to make a party punch for kids without alcohol and then have an alcoholic version for the adults. What I do when I serve this for kids is I mix the juices and then I mix the alcohol separately. The adults can add the vodka and rum mixture to their drink and the kids can still drink the punch!

Fruity Punch Mixed Drink

Blue Hawaiian Party Punch

Now, as I always say in cocktail recipes, taste is subjective, and so is strength. Ive had people tell me that my Cake By The Ocean Cocktail was both too weak and strong enough to get them drunk after one serving. If you taste this and its too strong, add more club soda. If its not strong enough, add more vodka or rum. Thats what I love about drink recipes you really can easily change them up to suit your preferences.

This would also be good with tequila, like my Raspberry Lemonade Margaritas, but ever since a mishap at a Friendsgiving Party a few years back I try to avoid tequila at all costs, lol.

If this drink looks familiar, it could be because its kind of a cross between Jungle Juice punch and my Maui Island Breeze Cocktail. Theres just something about all the flavors in the fruit punch and lemonade that make me want more and moreand more.

This summer is all about bringing Hawaiian experiences home so we can feel like were on a tropical vacation. Weve had a lot of time to get back into the kitchen and try out some new flavor combinations.

One of my favorite things to do in Waikiki is to sit at a beachfront restaurant and try out a new tropical drink. I like to feel the ocean breeze on my face and listen to Hawaiian music as I sip some tasty fruity flavors.

Since were spending out summer at home instead of Hawaii this year, I thought Id try to recreate some awesome Hawaiian cocktails at home.

Usually, most Hawaiian cocktail recipes use rum. But, I know some people prefer drinking vodka. This is one of the best tropical cocktails with vodka.

This vodka tropical cocktail recipe makes 8 servings, so its perfect for a future backyard luau or summer BBQ.

But, you can also mix up just the drink part and store it in the fridge for a few days.

Then, you can just pour it over ice when youre ready for a fantastic pineapple vodka cocktail.

How To Make The Drink On A Budget

If you are looking for a cheap way to make the punch, stick to low-cost vodka and rum. Jungle juice is great for college parties and events, so if you need to save on cash stick to something like Smirnoff or Titos Vodka.

I love Titos because its affordable and is quality vodka. Bacardi rum is also a great budget-friendly rum option. If Everclear is your thing you can use that, too.

We used fresh oranges and Maraschino cherries. The fruit is optional, but using it adds a ton of color to the drink.

Next, grab a large pitcher or punch bowl. Place the ice cubes and the fruit slices into the dish.

Then, pour in the tropical fruit punch, rum, and vodka. Last, stir and serve the chilled cocktail.

Thats it, your tropical vodka punch is done! Kim and I remind you to enjoy this beverage responsibly and wish you all the best

About Rum Punch A Little History

How To Make A Paradise Tropical Layered Cocktail Drinks Made Easy | How To Do that | Bar in Home

So I really love to dance Zumba and SocaFit, and many of my classmates and teachers are from the Caribbean islands.

Every party we have, someone brings their version of rum punch. And there are thousands of versions. When I decided to make my own version, I wanted to know more about the history of rum punch.

Basically, when the English were sailing around the world being jerks as part of the British East India Company, they drank a lot of beer on the ships.

Like 11 pints a day per person. And, they were on the ships for a long time.

Towards the end of their trips, the beer was rancid and flat. On the return home, they needed a new alcoholic beverage to drink- so they used what they found at their destination.

In the East Indies and the Caribbean, those ingredients were rum, fruit, and spices. a mix was made for the journey home, and rum punch was born.

Today rum drinks are a popular part of mainstream culture throughout the Caribbean islands, and there are as many rum punch recipes as there are families.
