Every island in the Caribbean appears to have their own adaptation of a rum mixed drink, from the mojitos in Cuba to the rum swizzle in Bermuda, however for our ongoing motion picture night I ran with the Jamaican form as I had run with some other Jamaican works of art for the remainder of our Pirates of the Caribbean-themed supper (banana wastes, snap shrimp and rice, and a Jamaican plate of mixed greens – yum!)

What's diverse about the Jamaican form of this rum punch formula contrasted with the other islands' adaptations is the incorporation of lime juice and the substantial utilization of grenadine syrup.

Don't hesitate to skip or reduce the grenadine in case you're searching for something less sweet, or look at our mai tai mixed drink which tastes comparable and utilizes hand crafted almond syrup to improve which is somewhat not so much saccharine but rather more balanced (in my totally one-sided, genuine belief).

In the event that you appreciate fruity or sweet beverages, this rum punch mixed drink is definitely fit for your strengths. It resembles having a Caribbean dusk directly in your glass!

  • 2 cups pineapple juice
  • 2 cups orange juice
  • 1 1/2 cups dark rum
  • 1/4 cup fresh lime juice
  • 3 tablespoons grenadine syrup
  • Citrus slices, garnish
  • Maraschino cherries, garnish


  1. In a large pitcher, mix the pineapple, orange and lime juices. Add the rum and set aside.
  2. For each individual serving glass, pour in one tablespoon of grenadine syrup (or simply the syrup from the maraschino cherry jar). Fill the glass with ice.
  3. Prepare your garnishes beforehand by skewering citrus slices and cherries for a cute, tropical garnish and also to let guests know what flavors they will taste in their drink. (You can use toothpicks or skewer on a strong straw - or just slice into the orange and lime so that you can place on the edge of the serving glasses.)
  4. When ready to enjoy, pour the rum punch into each glass to allow for a sunset effect. The drink will be red and the bottom and gradually fade to orange at the top.
  5. Garnish and serve.
