This pineapple rum punch is fruity, boozy, and perfect for summer! Cheers to the perfect tropical paradise cocktail!
Are you looking for the picture-perfect summer cocktail?
Well, this pineapple rum punch is just what you need!
It combines white rum, pineapple juice, orange juice, and a touch of grenadine!
It’s so easy to make and is equally delicious when served as a single drink or poured out of an old-fashioned punch bowl.
This drink is 100% classic tiki cocktail and the perfect summertime sipper.
Trust me, if you’re a big fan of sweet fruity cocktails this will be your new favorite!
Ingredients for pineapple rum punch
- Pineapple juice – This is the base of the drink and brings that bright fruity tropical flavor to the cocktail. I used canned as squeezing pineapple juice is a lot harder than orange.
- Orange juice – Fresh squeezed is best but if you can’t squeeze fresh try using a less sugar-added option for bottle orange juice.
- White rum – Tastes tropical and blends with the fruit juice really well.
- Grenadine – Grenadine is an unalcoholic pomegranate syrup found in most liquor stores or even grocery stores. Cheaper options of grenadine may include less real pomegranate.
Making this drink for parties
The recipe for this drink is for one cocktail.
Which is great if you’re only looking for one drink or having only a few guests over.
However, what if you wanted to make this drink for a party?
Well, the joy of this drink is that it can easily be multiplied to make whatever amount you might need.
In fact, this drink is perfect for a boozy punch bowl.
Just remember a few things when you’re multiplying this recipe:
- 1 cup is equal to 8 ounces.
- Ice shouldn’t be added until you serve as it can water down the punch. To keep punch cold you can try ice in bags, dry ice, or even frozen pineapple or orange juice so while it melts it will just add more fruit flavor.
- The grenadine might sink to the bottom of the punch bowl so you can also opt to add this to each individual drink if it bothers you. Just stir it up to recombine.
Using other types of rum
I like to use white rum for this pineapple rum recipe as it is a common tropical drink alcohol choice because it does not add too much flavor to the drink.
However, if you don’t have white rum on hand or are not a fan here are a few other options.
- Spiced rum: I actually really love aged rum in this drink. It adds a hint of spice flavor and gives the drink a real depth of flavor. You can also do half white rum and half spiced rum for a unique flavor for the rum punch.
- Aged rum: I’m don’t a huge fan of aged rum but if you have it on hand it will work in this recipe. I personally think expensive aged rums are better for sipping than included in cocktails.
Storage and leftovers
If you have a lot of leftover punch you can easily store it in the fridge for 1-2 days.
However, if you have already mixed it with ice it will start to water down.
I personally try to only make the amount I think I will drink. That way I’m not left with any leftover cocktails.
