When we were in Turks and Caicos this past Christmas we learned how to make the Island’s signature drink recipe -a Rum Punch. We made them a few times every day in our villa and ordered some when we hung out on the beach.

I fell in love with the beauty of this cocktail and the tropical fruity flavor. It’s made with fresh pineapple juice, orange juice, two types of rum, and some grenadine to get the beautiful color.

It’s a perfect cocktail for a tropical summer party or a wonderful summer cocktail to sip while relaxing on the beach.

To make this we used a local Turks and Caicos rum we packed as a souvenir from vacation. It really took me back to that stunning beach, however, I think all rum drinks remind me of a tropical beach.

Until we reunite I’ll just keep making my Rum Punch and reminisce about the white sand. Read more for the recipe…
