Bring the flavor of the Caribbean to your backyard barbecue with this festive concoction. Golden rum and coconut rum combine with apricot brandy and the juices of pineapples, oranges, and grapefruits. Garnish this summer-in-a-glass cocktail with lime wedges.
3/4 cup golden or amber rum
1/2 cup coconut rum
1/4 cup apricot brandy
1 cup pineapple juice
3/4 cup orange juice
1/4 cup pink grapefruit juice
Garnish: Limes, sliced
How to Make It
Combine all ingredients in a pitcher. Pour over ice to serve. Garnish with lime slices, if desired.
The other reviewers are right, this is a very boozy drink. I increased all the juices in it and it still packs quite a punch! ( pun intended) If you have rum lovers in your group this is good, but I think I will keep looking at other punch options.

Made several batches for a party and the drink was a big hit. Very easy to make and was not too sweet. I didn't find the drink to be too strong as earlier reviewers have said.

Good Summer cocktail. Made a big batch for a large party. I would increase the juices a bit. It packed quite the punch even after I increased the juice. Plus it can easily be made ahead of time. Just stir occasionally.

I made this punch for a Christmas party. I used Meyer rum which is why I think the color was more unappealing than the picture. I didn't try it, but my guests loved it so much I had to make three batches and they asked for another, but I had run out of rum!

This was good..I used Flor de Cana Nicaraguan rum..but it is not for the faint hearted so I diluted it a little with more juice to sweeten it. I actually put the leftover in a freezer container and had rum slushes with it later and those were good too!
