This tropical rum punch is a caribbean signature drink. It will transport transport you to your favorite island destination spot! It’s simple to make using fresh squeezed juices and two varieties of rum.
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 to sip while on the beach.
I used local Turks and Caicos rum we packed as a little souvenir and it really took me back to that stunning beach. Until we reunite I’ll just keep making my Rum Punch and reminisce about the white sand. Read more for the recipe…
