CARIBBEAN RUM PUNCH RECIPES

Caribbean Rum Punch Recipes And More

RUM PUNCH: This popular rum drink is quite often served complimentary at events. Quick and easy. Definitely "Party Time" with Caribbean Rum Punch Recipes.

If you don't find what you are looking for, just drop me a note and I will do my best to locate any recipe you might want.

RUM DRINKS: A extensive variety to fit any occasion. We like Cruzan Rum since it is made on the island but ask your local store for rum made in the Virgin Islands. These are smoother and similar to Cruzan Rum.

CARIBBIEAN RUM PUNCH And More
The most common of all Island Drinks is rum punch. It is easy to make, store and serve. Whether it is served in a Styrofoam cup or in a stylish manner it is pleasing to the majority. Since the 1700's, Cruzan Rum has been made on St. Croix . Did you tour the Cruzan Rum Distillery ? What do you need but fruit punch and rum to "think Caribbean "?

These are our favorite rum punch recipes.
