You only need 4 delicious ingredients to make this Pineapple Orange Rum Punch! Grenadine, white rum, pineapple juice, and orange juice get served over ice to make a drink that tastes like summer in a cup. Bottoms up!
If you’ve ever had a sip of some “jungle juice” at a party in your younger years and have now been forever scared off of punch, I have news for you – you’re missing out on what REAL punch tastes like! When you mix together all of the correct measurements of the best ingredients, this punch will become your new go-to cocktail for parties.
Specifically, this Pineapple Orange Rum Punch is meant to be sipped on at summertime soirees. Backyard barbecues, pool parties, or late nights at the beach house with friends are all ideal occasions to serve this fruity cocktail! It’s delightfully easy to make, too, so the party won’t stop if you need to make another glass or two.
This punch tastes like the fruity flavors of orange and pineapple, making it a real summertime staple. It’s made boozy with white rum, and there’s just enough in there to hit the spot, but not to overpower the other ingredients. There’s also a fun little splash of grenadine in the mix that contributes to the pretty hue and sweet flavor!
What You’ll Need:
- Grenadine – Be careful not to overdo it with the grenadine! There’s already a good amount of sweetness from the juices, so you don’t want to make it too sugary.
- White Rum – You can add more if you’d like, but I’ve found that an ounce and a half is just the right amount for me. I recommend tasting it with this amount before adding any more.
- Juices – You’ll need both pineapple and orange juices for this summery recipe! Make sure your OJ is pulp free for the smoothest sip.
How to Make Pineapple Orange Rum Punch
For more detailed instructions, scroll to the bottom of this post.
Create the first layer. Fill your glass with ice. Add grenadine to the bottom of the glass.
Add the remaining ingredients. Pour in the rum, pineapple juice, and orange juice. Mix well with a bar spoon.
Cheers! Garnish your glass, serve immediately, and enjoy!
Can I use a cocktail shaker instead? Yes, but then you’d be missing out on the pretty gradient effect of the layered colors.
What is white rum? There are two main types of rum – white and dark rum. White rum is preferred for this recipe as it doesn’t have the same spiced flavor as dark rum.
Can you omit the alcohol? Where’s the fun in that? Just kidding. You can totally make this into a beautiful mocktail!
This summer, make time for a cocktail or two!
