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 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!

    The perfect crowd pleaser!!! We didn’t have a drop left – thanks for sharing!

  2. Robin says:

    Kelly where did you get that adorable pitcher?

  3. M says:

    For a double batch, is it 50oz of each juice?

  4. John Sanders says:

    What type of coconut rum? Did you used Malibu or just a Coconut infused rum?

  5. John Benedict says:

    Did you mean 52ox containers of the Tropicana Pinepple Mango juice? That is what I am finding in the store. Trying to figure out total of each juice for the 3X recipe

    • Kirsten Turk says:

      Yes, sorry that is confusing. It would be 1 and 1/2 containers which would be about 75 oz of juice. I will update the recipe so it makes more sense! Thanks for pointing that out.

  6. John Benedict says:

    How much total juice for the 3X recipe? It seems like it is half rum and half juice.

  7. Brandon says:

    If I take out the grenadine and add blue curaco, do you think I’d get a nice blue color? Or would it be to dark?

    • Kirsten Turk says:

      Because of the juices, I think it would turn out more greenish or brown. Let me know what color it turns out if you try! You could just leave the grenadine out too and it will still be a nice color.

  8. Arch Johnston says:

    What are “floaters”?

    • Kirsten Turk says:

      They are just as extra shot added to the top of an already mixed cocktail! For this rum punch, I like adding a “floater” of spiced rum to the top, but if you like less of a “rummy” taste– skip it!

  9. Renne says:

    How many ounces are accounted for in each serving?

  10. Taylor says:

    What type of grenadine do you use?

    • Kirsten Turk says:

      Rose’s is a cheap and classic grenadine, and what I typically use for this recipe. If you want one less syrupy, try a higher end one that uses real pomegranate. If you don’t like grenadine, pomegranate juice will do the trick!
