Spring cocktails: Rum Punch

As the clichéd and very well used saying goes: “spring has sprung” and if you’re feeling the imminent heat that is lingering just around the corner there’s nothing like a refreshing cocktail to take the edge off. This particular spritzer will help you cool off with tropical fresh fruit juice and a smattering of rum. This recipe serves 8, depending on how fabulously thirsty you are or if you’re willing to share.

Spring cocktails: rum punch

  • 1 1/2 cups of light rum
  • 3 cups fresh orange juice
  • 3 cups fresh pineapple juice
  • 3 tablespoons fresh lime juice
  • 2 tablespoons cranberry juice
  • 2 tablespoons grenadine (or raspberry cordial)
  • Throw in some ice cubes

If you’re feeling particularly fancy, add a thin lime slice to the side of your glass, a curly straw and maybe a little umbrella. Combine this lush and swanky concoction with a charming garden view in the afternoon sun for the ultimate chill out session with friends and family or perhaps a sneaky drink with a shiny new magazine with the latest gossip on someone else’s crazy world of mischief.
