Substitute an additional cup of seltzer for the rum if you prefer to turn this summer cocktail into a refreshing tropical fruit punch.

Delicious with coconut rum!

I mixed this up with coconut rum instead of the dark rum. It was delicious and our friends loved it. I agree with previous reviewers that a little more rum is needed. Also....I couldn't find the Looza brand mango juice, so substituted mango nectar and omitted the sugar syrup. The punch was plenty sweet without it. Will be making this again!!

This is really good punch, but it definitely needs more rum than is called for. I started with 2 cups and then added more a little bit at a time until I hit the right amount. Also- if you're going to be keeping the punch bowl or pitcher out, I recommend freezing some pineapple or mango juice into an ice cube tray so you can drop a cube into drinks as you pour them. This punch is best when very cold.

I made this punch for a Girls Night party. It was a big hit! I could refill the punch bowl fast enough! I added a bit more rum to it but this punch is so delicious and drinkable, I can't wait to serve it today.
