1 mug of punch


  • crushed ice

  • 1 ½ fluid ounces spiced rum (such as Kraken®)

  • 1 fluid ounce freshly squeezed lime juice

  • 1 fluid ounce freshly squeezed orange juice

  • 1 fluid ounce freshly squeezed grapefruit juice

  • ¾ fluid ounce white rum (such as Captain Morgan™)

  • ¾ fluid ounce dark rum (such as Myers's®)

  • ¾ fluid ounce hibiscus syrup

  • ¾ fluid ounce almond orgeat syrup (such as Torani®)

  • 1 slice orange

  • 1 maraschino cherry


  1. Combine crushed ice, spiced rum, lime juice, orange juice, grapefruit juice, white rum, dark rum, hibiscus syrup, and almond syrup in a cocktail shaker. Cover and shake until the outside of the shaker has frosted.

Cook's Note:

To make hibiscus syrup: Bring 2 cups water, 1/2 cup white sugar, 1/3 cup hibiscus flowers, 1/4 cup brown sugar, a 1/2-inch piece of fresh ginger, and the zest of 1 lemon to a boil in a small saucepan. Reduce heat and simmer until sugars dissolve, about 10 minutes. Remove from heat and let mixture steep, about 5 minutes. Strain through a fine-mesh strainer, pressing mixture to extract as much liquid as possible. Discard solids and store syrup in the refrigerator for up to 2 weeks.
