Pineapple Ginger Mojito
Caramelized pineapple and fragrant ginger banding together to jazz up a beloved classic? Mmm… Yes, please! You and your pals will be sipping on this oh-so-refreshing pineapple ginger mojito from Kitchen Sanctuary all summer long. Enjoy it with juicy, tender barbecue and savor the sweet tang.
Rum Sunset Cocktail
Fancy doesn’t always translate to elaborate. Oftentimes, simple is best. For example, orange juice, spiced rum and grenadine are the only three ingredients in the luxurious Rum Sunset Cocktail from Miss in the Kitchen. We love that its name and recipe are both a fun spin on the Tequila Sunrise and the Sunrise Sipper, other boozy OJ libations.
Spiced Rum Punch
Enliven any party with a giant bowl of this citrusy, cinnamon-y spiced rum punch from Cake ‘n Knife. The bold, refreshing, warm flavors of this spicy-sweet libation are heavenly. Plus, we love cinnamon not only for its iconic taste and aroma but also for its impressive health benefits. Drink up!
Maple Brandy Punch
Honestly, our Test Kitchen’s maple brandy punch is so good, it tastes like you’re drinking your breakfast. Whip up a batch for your next get together and be prepared for guests to beg you for the recipe. If you’re a fan of maple baked goods, you’ve gotta try these delectable maple desserts.
Tipsy Mermaid Rum Punch
Channel your inner Ariel this summer while you indulge in this turquoise gem starring spiced and coconut rums, pineapple and lime juices and blue curacao. We’re not sure what we love more about this Tipsy Mermaid Rum Punch from The Chunky Chef: the fluorescent hue or the extraordinary tropical flavor. For another siren-inspired cocktail, fix yourself a Blue Lagoon Margarita.
Spiced Kombucha Rum Punch
If you haven’t yet hopped aboard the kombucha train, this spiced kombucha rum punch from Set the Table is a delightfully effervescent introduction. We love the fruity fizziness of kombucha by itself, but when it’s mixed with spiced rum and trendy apple cider vinegar and garnished with fresh cranberries and mint, it doesn’t get much better.
Pumpkin Pineapple Cocktail
Pumpkin reminds us of chilly autumn days, while pineapple screams “summer!” When you combine the two, then add booze, the results are simply glorious. The surprising medley of pumpkin puree and pineapple juice with dark rum and various spices in this pumpkin pineapple cocktail from Cookie and Kate have us wondering why no one concocted this elixir sooner!
Spiced Rum Chai Latte
Cozying up with a chai latte (hot or iced) is one of our absolute favorite pastimes, no matter the season or occasion. The spicy-sweet notes in this spiced rum chai latte by Recipe Runner are of what dreams are made. You can even make your own delicious chai mix for a homemade treat!
Spiced Rum Golden Milk
Heartwarming, soul-soothing golden milk is making a name for itself with its numerous health benefits, delicious taste and gorgeous hue. This anti-inflammatory spiced rum golden milk by My Diary of Us infuses dark rum and plenty of spices for an extra boozy, extra zesty kick.
