My girlfriends and I were in Belize in March - and of course we loved it. We are all going to get together again for Memorial Day and we'd like to make some Rum Punch like we had on AC. I did a search and found the 1)Sour 2)Sweet 3)Strong 4)Weak recipe, but it seems like there was fruit punch or something else in the Rum Punch we enjoyed (ok, I enjoyed it a little too much wink ) on our SEAduced trip, at Captain Morgans, and at Crazy Canucks.

Does someone have a Rum Punch recipe that will help us re-create a little bit of AC for our long weekend?

The best rum punch we had was at Capricon. We watched the bartender make his own punch with fresh fruits. We tried to make it when we got back to our condo but just could not get it right. He used watermelon, mango, pinapple, coconut milk, orange juice and water for sure and put it in the blender. But we must have missed something. It wasn't like his.

The good thing about finding a recipe is just keep expierementing. Even if you don't get it exactly right you eventually reach a point where you are so drunk you don't care.
Kinda like the night that we were making margaritas and ran out of lime juice........we were drunk enough to think that we could substitute grapefruit juice, but thats another story.

Have you tried the Painkiller? As originated at the Soggy Dollar Bar in Jost Van Dyke, BVI. It is excellent. Seems similar to Magoo's recipe, but without the watermelon and mango. Now where is that recipe?

crockhunter, LOL! That is too funny! I can second that. We all must have been together that night of the margaritas because we had a similar incident with trying to substitute things in our margaritas. It was quite interesting.

1 Large can Pineapple juice
1 Large can Orange juice
1-1.5 cans Coco Lopez (how sweet do you like it?)
1 750 Ml Bottle rum

Combine and serve over ice. Grind fresh nutmeg on top. The nutmeg makes the drink so make sure you find the whole nut and grind it yourself.

We watched many a bartender make that recipe while we where in the BVI's!

On that note, I've decided to take the rest of the day off and head down to the beach!

Like you, after having tasted several "varieties" of Rum punch while in Belize we also tried to recreate it. I honestly think it is the salt air myself and if you do not have the Belizean rum that is another important element. But we came close and here is what we did(you will have to experiment a little for the taste you like). Rum, Tangerine(or Tangelo) Ocean spray juice and then just add a splash of Reg ular Hawaiian punch. It comes real close!!! You just have to decide on how much rum!

Good luck and I might even join you in one of those Memorial Day weekend.

Just back. While there we bought "Citrus Valley Concentrated Fruit Punch" brand from the grocery store. It was a mixture of orange, pineapple, grapefruit and lime juice. Mix with water & rum...yum yum!

Bought a BZ Auxiliary Cookbook while there & found this one in it:

Rum Punch by Karen Diaz

1 qt. pineapple juice
1 qt. papaya juice
1 qt. orange juice
1/2 pt. lime juice
2 bottles ginger ale or Sprite
1 c. fresh diced fruit
white rum to taste

Stir together all juices. Add white rum to desired potency level. Pour over cubed ice and diced fruit in punch bowl. Ginger ale should be added just before serving (for fizz). Experiment with other fresh fruit juices. Great without the rum too!

Hope you & the girls have fun! Cheers!!! wink

All you recipes sound wonderful! However,you are all missing one of the key ingredients, that is only available in Belize. There is a tropical fruit concentrate that is made in Belize that most bars and for sure seaduced uses to make their rum punches. You can buy it at any store on the island we call it "fruit squash". :p
