Caribbean Rum Punch

Rum Punch

A few weeks ago I blogged about one of my dream destinations Turks & Caicos
on the other blog.

I featured this delectable photo and recipe for a Turks & Caicos-inspired rum punch.
I've been dreaming of drinking a rum-filled liquid like it ever since!

So, I decided to make it myself!
My logic works in a way that if I already own at least 1 ingredient for a cocktail, it's worth making!
Never mind I still needed to buy 4 other ingredients... But it was worth it!

To make your own Turks & Caicos-inspired rum punch, you need:
- 3 ounces fresh pineapple juice
- 2 ounces fresh orange juice
- 1 ounce gold (or dark) rum + 1/2 ounce to pour on top
- 1 ounce coconut rum,
- grenadine
- lime to garnish

In a cocktail shaker, or whatever you have near hand that you can mix these juices in, shake the pineapple juice, orange juice, 1 ounce rum, coconut rum and ice cubes together. Pour the juice in a glass. Add a shot of grenadine and watch it sink to the bottom. Gently pour the remaining rum on top, and add a lime wedge for garnish. Drink up!

Tastes like the perfect beginning of a wonderful Summer!

Not only does this sound delicious but it looks lovely too and brings back happy memories of our holiday in Grenada several years ago. said...

My brother lives in the Turks & Caicos. I'll see what he thinks of your drink. :-)

I'd love a non-alcoholic drink along these lines.

Why are all the pretty drinks illegal for me to drink? These look too pretty to drink anyways :)
