Boston Rum Punch
You don’t need to be from Boston to score both a sweet and sour rum recipe. If you like a mix of flavors in your cocktails, give a Boston Rum Punch a try. Like the others on the list, this fruity drink is quick and easy to make and also rum-based. Check out the short list of ingredients recommended by Liquor.com for this simple punch below:Jamaican rum (such as Smith & Cross Traditional Jamaica Rum)
Lemonade (any brand or kind you’d like)
1 nutmeg or half a strawberry
1 orange slice
Before touching any of the ingredients on the list above, first, fill a shaker with finely cracked ice to begin making your Boston Rum Punch, Liquor.com suggests. Then, add the rum and lemonade to the shaker and shake briefly. Pour the mixture (unstrained) into a pint glass such as an insulated stainless steel pint glass, and don’t forget to top it off with a straw or garnish.
Banana Rum Punch
If Malibu rum drinks aren’t your thing and you find yourself leaning towards banana rum drinks instead, Banana Rum Punch is probably just what your taste buds have been waiting for. This uncommon rum cocktail will have your guests going bananas trying to get the recipe. According to Kimberly Sneed of A Night Owl Blog, this combination of banana rum, pineapple juice, orange juice, and ginger ale is a crowd pleaser every time.
Here’s how Sneed suggests it’s done: first, combine your juices with your ginger ale and alcohol. Once you’ve mixed the banana rum, juices and ginger ale together with a few stirs, pour the punch into glasses over ice. Then, top off each drink with one pump of Torani Cherry Syrup. The syrup should sink to the bottom creating an ombre of tropical color. Garnish each glass with orange and lemon slices, and serve away!
Here’s what’s in a Banana Rum Punch:1 cup banana rum
2 cups orange juice
2 cups pineapple juice
2 cups ginger ale
1 cup Torani Cherry Syrup
Orange and lemon slices for garnish
