Bacardi Rum Punch Tips and Tricks

Grab Your Ingredients First

It’s always best to make sure you have everything you need before you get going! Notice this cocktail recipe calls for two different types of rum.

The maraschino cherries are for garnish, so they are optional, but highly recommended for the complete experience! Here’s everything you’ll need:

  • White rum and dark rum. The blend is everything in this cocktail!
  • Grenadine. For a little sweetness and tartness.
  • Orange juice. For acidity.
  • Pineapple juice. For that tropical flavor.
  • Lime juice. For some citrus. Juice from 1/2 the lime should be plenty. You can use the other half for extra garnish if you like.
  • Cherries. Optional

Use Two Kinds Of Rum

This Rum Punch is strong, thanks to the addition of both light and dark rum.

The major difference between dark and light rum is that dark rum is aged in oak, which gives it a deeper flavor with notes of vanilla and some nuttiness.

Green tip: Consider buying your alcohol in glass bottles to avoid extra plastic packaging, and always recycle your rum bottles!

Here, we use both because the oakiness of the dark rum adds a complex flavor to this punch. However, the addition of too much dark rum competes with the tropical flavors of the orange and pineapple.

If you are to use just one, go for the light rum, but adding both will give you a perfectly balanced cocktail!

Use A Mixer

Making this cocktail is as simple as adding all your ingredients to a mixing glass or cocktail shaker and mixing them together.

It’s best to make this in a mixing glass or shaker. That way, when you transfer it to your serving glass everything is sure to be integrated. Pouring the ingredients directly into your glass will likely result in some separation.

The denser grenadine will sink to the bottom, the juices will sit in the middle, and the rum will float to the top. And while I love a beautifully layered drink, this one, in particular, tastes best if you get all the flavors in one sip.

Serve Over Ice

This rum punch is best-served ice cold.

Once you’ve mixed up all your ingredients, fill a glass with ice. Then, pour your cocktail over top to serve it cold.
