Rum Punch

Rum Punch Cocktail

Rum Punch for a Party!
Don't you think a summer cocktail should make imagine yourself sitting by the shore with your toes in the sand? Rum punch is one of those summer cocktails.  Cool and fruity, rum punch will make a party!  One sip and you'll be transported to the beach.

This rum punch recipe is a make ahead recipe I use whenever we are having a large group for a summer picnic or barbecue.  Use the recipe below as your baseline and double or triple the ingredients as needed.  You'll need a large container for storage and room enough in your refrigerator to keep it cool.  Serve the rum punch in pretty pitchers or a beverage dispenser for self-serve convenience.

Makes 8 to 10 servings
