Easy Large Batch Rum Punch Inspired by the Turks and Caicos

August 29, 2020

Summertime sippin'

– a small town, midwestern girl living in sunny South Florida with my husband and our two golden doodles.

Welcome to my lifestyle blog dedicated to good food, better drinks, easy entertaining ideas and laid-back living. 

Sharing a cocktail, hosting a party with good friends, trying new recipes, making memories over a thoughtfully laid out grazing board; these are the moments I love to live and share with others.

Thanks for being here!

Hey, I'm Kirsten

Not much beats an ice cold cocktail, sitting on the beach with an ocean breeze somewhere in the Caribbean. Ahhh, I can just picture now. Luckily, this easy large batch rum punch recipe can bring you a little closer to that reality. While it may not bring the beach, it will bring the punch, and it’s perfect for these hot summer days.

This rum punch was inspired by the Turks and Caicos rum punch we drank on our honeymoon. Maybe the whole honeymoon thing made it taste even better πŸ˜‰ but I knew I had to try and recreate it when we got home.

This rum punch is so easy to make, and you can make it in large batches to please a crowd (and trust me, it really is a crowd favorite!!).

How to Make Large Batch Rum Punch

To make this Turks and Caicos inspired, large batch Rum Punch you’re going to need lots of rum! I like to use white rum, spiced rum and coconut rum for this recipe.

You will also need grenadine (for color), orange juice and pineapple mango juice. The tropicana pineapple mango one is my favorite!

I’ve made this Rum Punch in a pitcher like the one above which makes 10 glasses and in a large drink dispenser which made 40+ glasses!

Fair warning: this goes down easy and your crowd will be asking for more once it’s gone!

Funny story: I once made this on a float trip with around 25 people. I was originally going to make half Friday night and half Saturday. I did a 4x batch of the recipe below.

Saturday afternoon came and I got asked “are you making the other half of that Rum Punch tonight? That was so good!”

I had to break the news that both batches were already gone. I guess I’ll plan better for next year, but you can learn from my mistakes! Ha!
