• 3 oz of pineapple coconut juice
• 3 oz of coconut rum (you can also use light or dark rum here instead)
• 1 oz of mango juice
• 1 oz of orange juice
• splash of grenadine (mainly just for looks)
• lime slices and/or orange zest for garnish
• edible flowers for garnish
Step 1: Combine all juices.
Combine all juices (pineapple coconut, mango, and orange) and rum. Then stir.
Tropical rum drinks like this can be used with all kinds of fruit juices.
Step 2: Stir and pour over ice.
I like using nugget ice for cocktails because it looks really pretty. Plus, I like chewing ice and this one is the best!
Step 3: Add color.
This is an optional step, but I like adding a splash of grenadine for color to rum punch cocktails. The grenadine will fall to the bottom and give the drink a pretty ombre look.
It’s not a necessary step, but definitely adds an unexpected pop of color – great for parties.
Step 4: Garnish.
To take this cocktail up a notch, add lime, orange zest, and/or edible flowers for garnish. I like using orchids for a drink like this because it makes such a big impact. Did you know that orchids are actually edible?
To get the orange zest ribbon I just used a peeler to peel a long strip of zest from the orange. Not going to lie, it took a couple of tried to get a long piece that I could then curl, but it’s worth it, IMO.
Note for making larger rum punch batches
If making a rum punch in a large batch, rather than a single drink, treat the ounce numbers above as parts instead.
So, for example, if you’re making a large batch of pineapple mango rum punch, you’d use 3 parts pineapple coconut juice, 3 parts coconut rum, 1 part mango juice, and 1 part orange juice.
