Oh Jamaica! Jamaica! How I miss thee! I’ve got to say that I loveed growing up in a Jamaican household and I love everything about Jamaica, especially the food! Which is why I really should share more Jamaican recipes with you all. Noted! More Caribbean recipes to come in the future and will be added to my Carribean recipes page. But for now, I must share this Jamaican rum punch recipe with you.

So what’s in a Jamaican Rum Punch?

Good Jamaican Rum

Jamaican fruit punch syrup

Delicious juices

My secret ingredient of…sparkling wine!

I’d probably add sparkling wine to any punch I make because I’m a huge fan. This recipe is delish with or without it but I find that it lightens it up a bit.

So what kind of rum you may ask? I like to use Jamaican Appelton Rum in mine. I find that it doesn’t overpower the flavors. No worries if you can’t find Appelton, any dark rum will do. Hubby has taught me (he used to be a bartender) that a drink should not taste like straight liquor. Well my friends, this drink does not and it is super delicious.

This drink is perfect for a crowd and super easy to prepare. Serve this Jamaican rum punch with these cute little flamingo and pineapple straws for a real Caribbean feel.

I love all your Jamaican recipes because they are so very good. I lived and worked in JA for some 25 years way back in the 50s, 60s, and 70s, so I am really familiar with most JA foods and loved them all. Way back then, when you arrived at the airport in Kingston, you were handed a glass of Rum Punch. I already knew the "1 of sour,2 of sweet, 3 of strong, and 4 of weak" formula, but there was a special taste about the airport one , and I was told the "weak" was pineapple juice, not water. I was particularly intrigued by your addition of white wine, and I will be trying it shortly. Thanks for all you are doing to make us Jamaicans happy (and that does include me because I became a citizen shortly after Independence in 1962. Walk good always!

Nice!!! I think the white wine addition is a good twist. I hope you like it :)

Real Jamaican Rum Punch 1 part sour (Jamaican lime) 2 part sweet (cane sugar preferable brown) 3 part strong (Wray&Nephew white rum) 4 part weak (old time people used tea, now, anything goes) Works every time

Would using rum extract get the same flavor? I would like to make a 'dry' version of this for my workplace....any thoughts?


Wednesday 12th of February 2020

I think it would work. I would only start with 1 tsp of the extract though, that stuff is powerful.

I made this tonight for my birthday party and it was a hit! I used grenadine instead of the fruit punch. I also used the Appleton Run.
