Hey everyone, I’m Kelly and I blog over at The Lily Pad Cottage about all things creative. When I’m not busy with my two kiddos I love to share DIY projects, home decor and recipes. I’m so excited Courtney asked me to be a part of her fun series – Sweet C’s Summer Sippers. Today I’m sharing my favorite go to summer entertaining drink – my Best Ever Rum Punch Recipe.
We live on a lake up in Michigan and spend most of our summer entertaining friends, boating and splashing in the water. It is always nice to have a quick and easy drink recipe that serves a crowd and is refreshing on a hot summer day. This one is always a hit with our friends!
Be prepared to feel like you are on a tropical island when you drink this – I’ll admit, I even make this every once in a while in the dead of winter when I just can’t stand the snow any longer and need a mini-vacation!
- 3 C Orange Juice
- 3 C Pineapple Juice
- 3 C ginger ale
- 3 C rum
- 1/4 grenadine
- juice of 1 lime
- limes, pineapples, and fun umbrellas for garnish (optional but way fun!)
- Mix all ingredients in a large pitcher add ice and enjoy!
I just love the pretty pink color! Especially with the pop of teal from these gorgeous napkins. I picked them up at Cost Plus World Market along with the cute umbrellas. I found the stemless plastic wine glasses there too, perfect for our backyard or on the boat where glass is a no no.
If you aren’t a drinker this is also delicious without the rum – it’s the perfect non-alcoholic punch for a baby or bridal shower with the pretty pink color.
I hope you give this easy Rum Punch recipe a try at your next backyard BBQ. Thanks so much Courtney for having me over today, stop by and see me sometime at The Lily Pad Cottage – we can hang out on the lake and have a cocktail! You can also find me on Facebook, Pinterest and Instagram.
