Pineapple Rum Punch Ingredients

Pineapple Rum Punch raw ingredients that are labeled

You’ll need:

  • ¾ cup pineapple juice
  • ⅓ cup coconut rum (I used Malibu Original)
  • ½ cup lemon-lime soda
  • ⅛ cup fresh lime juice
  • ⅛ cup simple syrup
  • Fresh pineapple skewer and ice cubes, for garnish

PRO TIP:

I like to get the little mini (6-ounce) cans of pineapple juice to keep on hand in my pantry. These are great for this recipe since 6 ounces is equivalent to ¾ cup, and they come in a 4 or 6 pack. This way, I do not need to open a large bottle of pineapple juice if I am only using it to make a couple of cocktails.

SUBSTITUTIONS AND ADDITIONS

RUM: If you do not like the flavor of coconut, you can substitute a white rum, dark rum, or even a spiced rum in this pineapple rum punch drink. I really think that the coconut rum and the pineapple juice blend beautifully together and make a refreshing summertime cocktail, but the substitutes work well in this cocktail as well.

SODA: You can easily swap out the lemon-lime soda for ginger ale, club soda, or lemon-lime sparkling water in this drink recipe.

SIMPLE SYRUP: I like to keep a bottle of simple syrup stocked in my pantry. You can find this at all liquor, or grocery, stores. It is great to keep on hand for all types of cocktails. You can make your own by combining equal parts (½ cup each) of granulated sugar and water. You will heat it in a small saucepan on medium heat, just until the sugar dissolves. You do not want to boil the simple syrup. Allow it to cool, then store it in the refrigerator in a lidded jar, for up to two weeks.

GARNISH: To make this easy cocktail even more tropical, add maraschino cherries to the skewer and orange slices to the side of the glass. A drink umbrella is always a cheery addition too.

ICE CUBES: Add another layer of tasty fruit by making ice cubes out of orange juice so that when they melt, they don’t water down your drink but rather add more fresh flavor.

STEP TWO: Fill 2 (12-ounce) low-ball cocktail glasses ¾ full with ice cubes. Pour half (approximately 1 cup each of pineapple rum punch) of the cocktail mix over the ice in each glass.

PRO TIP:

If you are making a large batch, you can pour all of your ingredients into a large pitcher or even a punch bowl instead of individual glasses.

STEP THREE: Garnish with a skewer of fresh pineapple chunks.

PRO TIP:

Add colorful paper straws to your glass when serving for a pop of extra color.

How To Serve

Serve this drink as a party punch on hot summer days along with appetizers such as fruit salsa with cinnamon chips or tortilla chips and tomato salsa. Don’t forget to offer non-alcoholic pineapple drinks to the younger crowd with our pineapple lemonade or even our orange sherbet punch that has creamy hints of pineapple too. 

Our white claw slushie and mango mojito are two more delightful summer cocktails to enjoy.

Storage

IN THE FRIDGE: You can make this amazing tropical cocktail ahead of time and keep it chilled in the refrigerator for up to 24 hours or until ready to serve. Do not add ice until you are ready to serve, or the ice will water down your punch.

IN THE FREEZER: We don’t recommend freezing this cocktail. It is best made fresh.

Can I make this recipe ahead of time?
