This Rum Punch is made with orange juice, lime juice, either light, dark or coconut rum, and grenadine.
This rum punch recipe is going to make you feel like you are on vacation with every sip! Rum punch cocktail recipe usually consists of rum (light, dark, or coconut) and has lots of fruit juice like orange juice, lime juice and grenadine for color. Grenadine syrup can still give the cocktail that fruit punchy color it deserves.
Throw all the cares that you have in this world away, sit back, and enjoy this delicious rum punch. Rum punch was originally made with aqua vitae, rose water, orange juice and sugar. As this drink has evolved, it has always contained the five central ingredients which are a rum, citrus, water and sweetener of some sort. Rum punch is mostly enjoyed with fried chicken or seafood of some sort. I would recommend making this with Cod Fish Tacos with Corn Slaw and Spicy Mayo, Crab Cakes with Chipotle Aioli or my Chicken and Shellfish Paella. IT would pair wonderfully and they are to die for.
What you will need
Orange juice: For best flavor, freshly squeezed is obviously the best. If you are looking for a quick and easy fix, then use store bought orange juice.
Lime juice: Use juice from a fresh lime although you can use store bought lime juice as well.
Rum: You can use light, dark or coconut rum like Malibu.
Grenadine syrup: This provides the best way to sweeten the punch up with a great grenadine taste.
Fresh or maraschino cherries: I used fresh cherries although the maraschino cherries works just as good. You can also garnish with an orange slice if you wish.
