Any time we are at a wedding with an open bar I lean towards my favorite fruity alcoholic drink, the Malibu Bay Breeze. I took that classic beverage with a Caribbean twist and added a few more tropical flavors to make this fun punch recipe.
Coconut Rum - Coconut rum is a type of rum that is made with the addition of coconut flavor. This can be done through the use of coconut extract, or by infusing the rum with fresh coconut. Coconut rum is popular in tropical cocktails, and can also be enjoyed on its own.
Cranberry Juice - Cranberry juice is rich in antioxidants and has been shown to have numerous health benefits. Try to choose one that is 100% juice without added sugar.
Orange Juice - Orange juice is a popular breakfast drink made from the juice of oranges. It is usually freshly squeezed, but can also be made from concentrate.
Pineapple Juice - Pineapple juice is a drink made from the juice of pineapples. It is usually pretty sweet without any added sugar.
Mango Nectar - Mango normally comes as mango nectar and not mango juice. If your store does have mango juice that is fine to use instead of mango nectar.
How to Make Malibu Rum Punch
Step One: Combine all the ingredients in a cocktail shaker or pitcher. Mix well.
Step Two: Pour into glasses full of ice cubes. Garnish with a slice of orange, a slice of pineapple, or maraschino cherries, if desired.
Plain Rum - If you don't have coconut rum you can substitute your favorite brand of plain rum and add a teaspoon of coconut extract.
Flavored Malibu - Malibu Rum also comes in some fun flavors like watermelon, lime, mango, and passion fruit. Feel free to try any fruity flavor you like in this cocktail.
Coconut Water - If you'd like a lighter cocktail not so heavy on fruit juice you can cut the amounts of juices in half and replace the rest with coconut water.
Creamy - For a creamy punch add an ounce or two of coconut milk or heavy cream.
Glasses - Serve in any glass you'd like such as a highball glass, hurricane glass, or rocks glass. Just make sure it has room for the ice.
