What Is Rum punch?

I recently did a little research on the origin of rum punch. Apparently, the word “punch” comes from a Sanskrit word that means “five”, as the drinks were originally made with five ingredients; alcohol, sugar, lemon juice, water, and tea or spices.

The drink eventually made it’s way from England to the Africa where it took on the more tropical notes that we know today. Native island fruits lent themselves perfectly to rum punch; their natural sweetness has always been a perfect match for most kinds of rum.

When it comes to making rum punch, keep this rhyme in mind: One of Sour, Two of Sweet, Three of Strong, Four of Weak.” This means punch is made with: one part lime juice, two parts sweetener, three parts rum, and four parts water.

What’s In a Rum Punch Cocktail?

Rum punch cocktail recipe usually consists of rum (light, dark, or coconut) and lots of fruit juice like pineapple, orange juice, lemon or lime juice and grenadine for color. Some of these can be swapped out and the amounts may vary, but these ingredients are usually the basics of a rum punch.

The most popular rum punch is Jamaican rum punch. The drink is sweet, strong, and has a generous amount of fruit flavor.
