Rum Punch

I’m not much of an umbrella drink kinda person, but I can never resist a glass of chilled rum punch. It tastes better the longer it gets to set, so make it in advance and allow all the flavours to intermingle until they’re ready to seduce your tastebuds.

For extra umph – add a tiny touch of hot chilli powder… =)


  • 1 cup fresh lime
  • 2 cups brown sugar
  • 3 cups spiced rum (my favourite, bnut you can use any kind of rum you like really)
  • 4 cups water or tropical fruit juice (use less sugar if using fruit juice)
  • Freshly grated nutmeg
  • angostura bitter
  • Fruit
  • crushed ice


  1. Mix all ingredients in a bowl and chill.
  2. Serve in over crushed ice glasses and finish up each drink with a few dashes of bitters, nutmeg, (chilli), lime slice, orange or pineapple and the traditional cherry on top.
