Tropical Pom Rum Runner

Friday, December 31, 2010
Fun Holiday and Summer drinks can start out with a delicious fruity Tropical Pom Rum Runner or our Caribbean Rum Punch just like those popular cruise drinks you can experience them in your own home with these tropical flavors.

Our delicious drink has banana rum, lots of fruit juices, and a lemon drop schnapps!

The Caribbean Rum Punch is another fruity favorite similar to a Coco Loco we had on many cruise Islands so let our drinks take you away to a favorite vacation spot!

Holiday and Summer Drinks

We usually make these drinks for New Year's Eve, Christmas, and our Caribbean Rum Punch for the Holiday and summertime fun.

Since light and dark rum are our favorite choice of spirits, we just love making these two recipes we have for you to try.

Our Caribbean Rum Punch is the choice for backyard adult parties all year long, we hope you try both and enjoy them!

Caribbean Rum Cruise Drinks

During the years we were lucky enough to travel on cruises and the above recipe for our Caribbean Rum Punch is also a copycat recipe from our trips in the Bahamas called a coco loco.

It's always been a favorite when we visit the Royal Caribbean Island and although not the exact recipe it's pretty close to what we love, except for adding another shot on top!
