Happy Friday!

It’s time to relax after a long week, and what better way then to kick back with a cocktail? My favorite is a simple rum punch – the fruity notes whisk you off to a tropical vacation without being overly sweet. Better yet? This recipe is best made in a pitcher so it’s perfect for celebrating the end of the week with all your girlfriends

Rum Punch

  • 80 mint leaves, torn or thinly sliced
  • 8 ounces light rum
  • 8 ounces aged rum
  • 8 ounces fresh orange juice
  • 8 ounces mango nectar or juice
  • 4 ounces pineapple juice
  • Ice
  • 8 pineapple wedges

In a pitcher, combine all of the ingredients except the ice and pineapple wedges and refrigerate until chilled, about 2 hours. Stir well and serve over ice in red wine glasses. Garnish each drink with a pineapple wedge.
