We’re in peak grillin’ and chillin’ season, and the best way to get a party started is with an abundance of booze. Go ahead and spike the punch. It’s perfectly acceptable at an end-of-summer party — unlike when you’re at prom. Below, we’ve rounded up some of our favorite spiked-punch recipes.
Try the Sunrise Punch (pictured above) — a rum-based drink that is slightly creamy from coconut milk and stays ice-cold thanks to frozen pineapple and strawberries — and get more ideas for your party with our collections of fruity alcoholic drinks and our best summer cocktails.
Don’t let the pink hue deceive you — this fruity drink really packs a punch. The potency of two types of rum (light and dark) is masked by the sweetness of passion fruit, orange and pineapple juices.
This simple cocktail uses strawberry syrup, lime juice and rum, but you could infuse simple syrup with any fruit flavor that you love.
Break out the leis while sipping on Rev Run’s tropical mango-pineapple-guava-orange drink. Cocktail umbrellas are not optional.
