On a recent family vacation I needed a punch that I could make by the pitcher. 12 of my family members and friends had a great 4th of July weekend outside of Atlanta, in the Chattahoochee Hills. We know the majority of would certainly be spent enjoying the pool. My hubby already had already made plans for the grill and next we need a cocktail.
This recipe first appears on Beyond Frosting as Tequila Pineapple Punch. Good Tequila in large quantities can get rather expensive. So I thought why not a Rum Punch without the heavy Fruit Punch vibe.
Enter Malibu Black … more citrus and less coconut. Equally as tropical.
Next, I needed a tequila. Lately I’ve leaned a lot more towards Repesado than traditional blanco tequilas for cocktails.
Add oranges and lemons ….viola’. The perfect summer pool concoction was born.
I usually don’t do recipes. But here you go:
PINEAPPLE RUM PUNCH (60 oz pitcher):
- Can of pineapple juice
- 2 cups Malibu Black
- 1 cup repesado tequila
- Seltzer or club soda
- Oranges / lemons
Slice fruit and place in pitcher or punch bowl. Stir in ingredients and mix. Chill punch or serve over ice.
