Excellent punch for a hot 4th of July holiday. I added a nice rasberry puree along with the strawberry just to try and be creative. Which this recipe allows you to be. And it is okay to add more rum. I used a full fifth of a Cruzan 120 Proof and it still wasn't really at all potent. Lightweights were having more fun though; )... And if you can try and mix it from time to time while it slushes/freezes over so it doesn't lair. Other than that don't leave it in too long for the happening of it completely freezing and then having to take time for it to thaw a lil. So make it the night before or early morning of the party and everything will be deliciously fine... Read More

I have made this every year for our annual fall party and just made it for a work party. Everyone ALWAYS loves it and asks for the recipe (unless they don't drink rum). After freezing overnight I put the entire contents in a punch bowl and add a 2 liter bottle of squirt. I also have also used frozen orange /pineapple/bannana concentrate instead of plain oj and added limeaid which makes it taste more like a frozen daiquiri. Read More

I've made a Vodka slush similar to this for years. You only need to add the water called for for each frozen juice-no sugar! Adding a can of cranberry juice instead of the strawberries is a really tasty option. I also use use more alcohol. Mix all the ingredients in a plastic storage container and stir every few hours til slushy. Read More

I made this recipe as shown for a girl's weekend away. We added a little more rum than called for one fifth but other than that followed the recipe exactly. It was fabulous! The consistency was great and it felt like we were on a tropical island! Serve it over Seltzer not soda. Read More
