Punch It Up: A Pineapple Mango Rum Punch Recipe Inspired by the Caribbean


Punch It Up: A Pineapple Mango Rum Punch Recipe Inspired by the Caribbean

A week from tomorrow, Jeff and I are headed out on an eight-day cruise! I’m so excited to get away for a week and just relax without being so tied to my computer (although I’m totally bringing it – I’m not that crazy).

And to kick off our upcoming vacation and celebrate the fact that tomorrow is World Cocktail Day (!!!), I partnered with Carnival Cruise Lines to share a cocktail recipe inspired by our upcoming travels. It’s a pineapple mango rum punch and it’s kind of my new favorite cocktail. So good! Click through for the recipe and a few deets on our upcoming trip.

Recipe on a pineapple mango rum punch that will make you feel like you're in the Caribbean.

We’re headed to the Southern Caribbean with Carnival on the 20th and this rum punch seemed pretty appropriate for the occasion. Maybe they’ll have something like this on the Carnival Vista? Or at one of the beaches we’re headed to….

We’re hitting up Aruba, Dominican Republic, Curacao, and Turks & Caicos on this trip and I cannot wait. Super pumped about Curacao and Aruba especially. I swear, no matter how many times I go to the Caribbean, I always feel like I could go again. I really do love tropical vacations more than any other.

That said, I recognize that not everyone is about to head out on a tropical vacation. BUT you can at least feel like you are with this rum punch recipe. It’s a little bit sweet, but not too sweet. And super fresh tasting too – like it is straight out of a Caribbean pressed juice bar, that has been known to spike a drink or two. Now, that’s a place I want to visit. 🙂

Here’s the recipe for pineapple mango rum punch…

Pineapple Mango Rum Punch Recipe

Ingredients for Pineapple Mango Rum Punch (servings 1 cocktail)

  • 3 oz of pineapple coconut juice
  • 3 oz of coconut rum (you can also use light or dark rum here instead)
  • 1 oz of mango juice
  • 1 oz of orange juice
  • splash of grenadine (mainly just for looks)
  • lime slices and/or orange zest for garnish
  • edible flowers for garnish

Note for making larger batches: If making a punch, rather than a single drink, treat the ounce numbers above as parts instead. So, for example, if you’re making a large batch of pineapple mango rum punch, you’d use 3 parts pineapple coconut juice, 3 parts coconut rum, 1 part mango juice, and 1 part orange juice.

How to Make Pineapple Mango Rum Punch

Combine all juices (pineapple coconut, mango, and orange) and rum. Then stir. Pour over ice and add a splash of grenadine for color. The grenadine will fall to the bottom and give the drink a pretty ombre look. Then, add lime, orange zest, and edible flowers for garnish.

A taste of the Caribbean! This pineapple mango rum punch recipe is giving me all of the topical vibes.

I’ve been to the Caribbean a few times, like I mentioned, and every time I’ve visited, there are always, ALWAYS a few rum drinks on hand. They’re pretty much everywhere! So, I’m hoping that this recipe will give you all of the tropical vibes today.

And if you’re in the mood for a little more than a tropical drink, head over to Carnival.com to check out cruise destinations near you and plan your next trip.
