Hit of the party! A great recipe. I quadroupled the recipie: 1-2 liter bottle of gingerale 2-64oz bottles of cranberry juice 1 large bottle of bacardi rum (the bottle with the handle formed into it---about 18.00) and a cup of sugar. Perfect Proportions!!!!!!!!! Read More

Maybe my friends and I are a little different. But I had to triple the recipe but leave the rum singled in order for it to taste like a fun punch rather than rum. Once I did that though it was great. I'd just suggest mixing everything together then add the rum to taste before you dump the whole 2 1/4 cups in. Read More

This was the first beverage to go at our party. We added a lemon/cranberry ice ring made in a bundt pan to pretty it up a bit. Everyone took a copy of this recipe... and you should try it too. Read More

I really liked this recipe. I added pineapple juice to it just because I love it with Rum and feel that Cranberry Juice alone is too concentrated. Read More

Great patio party punch! I doubled recipe with exact proportions and it was wonderful! I did take one cup of the cranberry juice and heated it on the stove. Once hot I stirred in the sugar until it dissolved and let it simmer for a few moments. Then I mixed that into the other ingredients. Also you must make this with a quality rum to cut down on such a "rummy" flavor. I used a "Private Select" spiced rum and it was awesome! Read More

this punch was MUCH stronger than i had expected but i guess it did the job! i ended up doubling up on the amount of ginger ale and cranberry juice and squeezing in some fresh lime just so that there was some other flavor besides rum. even still i couldn't help but feel like my party guests and i were at prom and somebody had excessively spiked the punch...

This was really good but the added sugar made it too sweet next time I will leave it out. Read More

This punch is very easy to make and it was a hit at our Bar-B-Q. Even though I tripled the recipe it was the first thing we ran out of. My guests loved it. My only trouble was getting the sugar to melt instead of just lying at the bottom of the punch bowl! But I will definately make this again. Read More
