KITCHEN SCOOP: Righteous Rum Punch


WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) -- The super-sweet pink rum punch of the seventies has no place in my cocktail recipe box nowadays. With natural, unsweetened fruit juices and not-from-concentrate versions readily available, there’s no reason to rely on the corn-syrup blended “juices” ever again. So I dusted off the old recipe, got rid of all the out-of-date ingredients and came up with a trendy new twist on my old favorite party punch.

My punch is packed with fresh juices and three kinds of rum: light, dark and coconut rum. I use bottled-refrigerated juices so you don’t even have to juice or squeeze. A quick stir and the party starts! I’m not a grenadine girl, but if you like the classic red cocktail syrup add a couple drops to the top of each glass, once served.

This is a highly alcoholic drink and not meant for anyone underage. Please drink responsibly and never drink and drive. Enjoy!

Righteous Rum Punch

½ cup light rum
¼ cup dark rum
2 tablespoons coconut rum
1 ¼ cup unsweetened pineapple juice
1 ¼ cup orange juice (not from concentrate)
2 tablespoons Key lime juice, such as Nellie and Joe’s ™
ice for serving
fresh fruit garnish if desired

Mix all ingredients together in a small pitcher. Serve over ice with fruit garnish, if desired.
