Carribean Rum Punch Eileen Goltz. | Pareve

Recipe submitted by Richard Nusbam Rock Island IL.

You can leave out the rum for a non-alcoholic punch if you wish (remember more rum=more Fun).


6 oz sugar
6 fl oz boiling water
juice of 4 limes and 4 lemons
1 1/2 cup pureed mango
2/3 cup strawberry puree (optional)
8-10 oz white rum
1 litre (1 ¾ pints) tropical fruit juice
1 litre (1 ¾ pints) lemonade or sparkling mineral water
plenty of ice
quartered lime and orange slices to decorate


Stir the sugar and water together until the sugar has dissolved. Leave to go cold.

Mix the sugar syrup with the lime juice, lemon juice, mango, strawberry puree(if using), and rum (if using) and stir together until well mixed. This can be set aside and chilled until just before you are ready to serve. Stir in the fruit juice and lemonade and serve over ice cubes, decorated with lime and orange slices. 

Serves 12 to 16.
