A excerpt from the website
When most people think about the Caribbean (if you’ve never lived on the islands) one of the things which comes to mind is sipping on a cold glass of rum punch, decorated with slices of fresh fruit while sitting taking in the rays on white sandy beach (or a swim-up bar at an all-inclusive resort). Truth be told, rum punch is not as common a drink with locals as you would think. A more classic drink would be rum and coke or if you were in Cuba, a Mojito and if in Puerto Rico, it would be Piña Colada.
I’m going back to my “ultimate” series and in doing so, give you what I think is the perfect rum punch recipe.
1 cup fresh lime juice
2 cups grenadine syrup
2 cups rum (Caribbean rum)
1 cup coconut rum
2 cups pineapple juice
2 cups orange juice
5-8 drops of Angostura bitters
Orange slices, for garnish
Pineapple slices, for garnish
Notes. The traditional way of making rum punch is to use a strong white rum, but I much prefer a dark rum as I love the undertones you get from it. If you don’t have Grenadine, use a simple syrup or if you have a cane juice syrup that would work well also. Be sure to add crushed or cubed ice before serving.

Here are today’s five thing to know about Rum:
- Rum was manufactured, distilled, and made long before any other spirit. It’s history is a vast one filled with stories, and fables. It was the first branded spirit made.
- Rations of rum were given to sailors in the British Army to be mixed with lime juice because it fought off the scurvy.
- When wealthy titles were given to parsons, they were thanked with a glass of rum.
- In Australia, the rum hospital can recognize rum as it as its chief contributor of revenues that were generated via the rum exports they were known for.
- Triangular trade was introduced as slaves were traded for rum, sugars, and other items that were all carrying missionaries- this was known as ‘rum and bible.’
