Fruity Rum Punch Recipe

A fruity rum punch recipe made with light rum, the juices of pineapple, lemon, and orange and mixed with ginger ale. Serve this rum drink for your next holiday brunch or Christmas party.

With New Year’s eve right around the corner, many of you are still in the full swing of holiday entertaining and I wanted to share this recipe for rum punch with you. This is an easy drink to make for a party and the nice thing about it is you can mix all of the fruit juices ahead of time in the afternoon and have it chilled and ready to go for your evening party. Just hold off adding the ginger ale until you are ready to serve.

This is an alcoholic punch that has just the right mix of sweetness from the fruit juices and carbonation from the ginger ale, with the rum giving it a bit of added depth and richness.

Uses Confectioners Sugar

One of the more interesting aspects of this recipe is using confectioners sugar, instead of granulated sugar for sweetening. By using confectioners sugar, you eliminate any grittiness from undissolved plain sugar.

The addition of maraschino cherries into the punch bowl adds a nice touch of color, and taste great too. If you like, add a bright red table covering underneath the punch bowl and make it a centerpiece of the evening.

Rum punch is something that can be made for any occasion. You can serve this for a bridal shower brunch, wedding brunch or a summer garden party. All you need to do is decorate for the occasion and make it your own.

Oh, and if you are missing a punch bowl, you can instead use a large pitcher for the rum and fruit juice mixture and have each guest mix their own cup with the amount of ginger ale they want.

***Serving Tip*** If you are having a large party, make a second batch of this punch but hold off adding the ginger ale until you are ready to serve. Place in a serving pitcher for easy pouring and refrigerate. When the bowl needs refilling, your mixture will be ready to go. Just add more ginger ale.
