Jamaican Rum Punch

Jamaican rum punch is a very popular drink mainly enjoyed by tourist to the island and around Christmas time my local Jamaicans.

The punch is so popular there are different versions of rum punch using various types of rums.

Here I share a classic Jamaican rum punch recipe with a few additional ingredients I like to include.

What Goes In Jamaican Rum Punch

Here is the what goes into a classic Jamaican rum punch. Freshly squeezed lime juice, white overproof rum, pineapple juice and strawberry syrup. The syrup gives the punch its sweet taste.

I used Wray and Nephew white overproof rum, which is the best for Jamaican rum punch recipe.

You have to use a Jamaican rum in a Jamaican rum punch! Just joking, you can use any white rum especially if you feel Wray & Nephew is too strong for you.

Here are some additional ingredients that I added to my rum punch recipe.

Dark rum, orange juice and fruit punch. I wanted the rum punch stronger and sweeter.

Although I used freshly squeezed orange juice, bottle orange juice is just and good and take less time to prepare.

How To Make

This is very easy to do just pour all the ingredients in a punch bowl and mix well.

You can also add slices of orange and pineapple in the bowl if you are serving it at a party. This is a nice garnish.

Serve over lots of ice because this rum punch is quite strong.

If you serving it at a party do not add the ice to the punch bowl because you don’t want the ice to dilute the flavour of the punch.

Remember to drink responsibly.

    So simple and divine. This Jamaican rum punch sounds amazing. I’m a huge pineapple fan so I think I’d love it. I’d have to go easy on the rum though. Nice cocktail. Can’t wait to make it soon.
