In this Bacardi Rum punch recipe, we share with you how to make a single cocktail (and also, how to make it in a big batch) to transport you to a tropical destination with every sip.
What Ingredients Are Needed To Make A Bacardi Rum Punch?
Bacardi Rum “White Label” — The alcohol base for this cocktail.
Fresh mango puree — The ripper the mango, the better. If needed, substitute with frozen mango.
Pineapple juice — One of the main tropical flavors. Use homemade pineapple juice for the best result. Substitute with bottled pineapple juice.
Fresh lime juice — Only use freshly squeezed lime juice to really get the citrus freshness and aroma that’s needed in this cocktail.
Coconut water — For a salty coconut flavor kick. Opt for the water from coconut or bottled coconut water.
Angostura bitters — An essential in cocktail making. It’s a concentrated bitter mix made of herbs and spices that has a bright orange color. Do not worry if you don’t have it, but investing in a bottle of Angostura is a good thing to have in your cocktail cabinet. You are going to use only a few drops per cocktail like with a Coffee Old Fashioned so it will last you ages.
Optional: Coconut flavored rum — Add a splash of a coconut flavored rum like Malibu to amp the coconut taste.
Garnish: Lime wheel, triangle of coconut flesh (only the white part), and a few pineapple leaves
Crushed ice — Opt for mid-size crushed ice. Small ice cubes eventually water down the cocktail too quickly.
Useful Tools To Make the Bacardi Rum Punch
Cocktail shaker — To mix and chill the ingredients by shaking them with ice.
Jigger — To measure the pour of each liquid ingredient.
Juicer — For the fresh lime juice.
Knife and cutting board — To cut the fruits and garnishes.
Big balloon glasses — Almost any glass for a rum punch works. Just make sure to use one big enough to hold plenty of ice. Hurricane glasses or Tom Collins glasses or other optional tall glasses.
