Today I’m sharing my go to summer drink for when we are entertaining – my Best Ever Rum Punch recipe. It’s the perfect summer time drink, and hey if you aren’t a drinker it’s delicious without the rum too.
We spend most of our summer entertaining friends, boating and splashing in the water and it’s always nice to have a quick and easy drink recipe that serves a crowd and is refreshing on a hot summer day. This one is always a hit with our friends!
Be prepared to feel like you are on a tropical island when you drink this – I’ll admit, I even make this every once in a while in the dead of winter when I just can’t stand the snow any longer and need a mini-vacation!
I just love the pretty pink color! Especially with the pop of teal from these gorgeous napkins. I picked them up at Cost Plus World Market along with the cute umbrellas (everything tastes better with a party umbrella!) I found the stemless plastic wine glasses there too, perfect for our backyard or on the boat where glass is not the best idea.
If you leave out the rum this is also the perfect non-alcoholic punch for a baby or bridal shower with the pretty pink color.
Yum, I think I need to go mix up a batch, relax by the water, read a magazine, nap in the sun….oh wait, there’s that whole parenting thing to attend to – so, I’ll go jump in the water, splash my kids, build a sandcastle, get their cute behinds in bed and enjoy my cocktail with the sunset. Even better!
