Rum Punch Recipes

Ginger Rum Punch, One of Many Rum Punch Recipes,

Rum punch recipes are party favorites. But these are special; they're sure to become your favorite favorites.

Have you heard the Jamaican Rum Punch rhyme? Here it is, straight from our island friends:

Lime juice
Sugar syrup or strawberry syrup
Light rum
Pimento seeds and allspice to taste

"One of sour, two of sweet, three of strong, and four of weak." Serve over ice.

That's the entire recipe. It is so charming we decided not to add a thing.

Ginger Rum Punch

The perfect blend of flavors.

1/2 cup brown sugar, packed
1/2 cup water
1 large thumb-size piece fresh ginger, chopped
5 cups unsweetened pineapple juice
1-1/2 cups amber rum
2 liters (about 8 1/2 cups) grapefruit soda
4-6 cups club soda
Pomegranate syrup, optional

Chill all ingredients well before mixing.

In a small saucepan, bring the brown sugar, water, and ginger to boil. Lower the heat and simmer for about 15 or 20 minutes. Cool.

Strain the ginger from the brown sugar mixture and pour the sugar-water into the punch bowl. Stir in the pineapple juice and add the rum.

Just before serving, stir in the grapefruit soda and club soda. Add a splash of pomegranate syrup, if you like, for a little color.

Float an ice mold. Serve over crushed ice, if desired. Makes 40 or more 4-ounce servings.
