Throw all the cares that you have in this world away, sit back, and enjoy this delicious rum punch. Rum punch was originally made with aqua vitae, rose water, orange juice and sugar.

You'll only need a few simple ingredients to make this. The exact measurements are listed in the recipe card below. Here's an overview of what you'll need:
See recipe card for quantities.
In a pitcher, combine the orange juice, lime juice, rum and grenadine.
Orange juice: For best flavor, freshly squeezed is obviously the best. If you are looking for a quick and easy fix, then use store bought orange juice.
Lime juice: Use juice from a fresh lime although you can use store bought lime juice as well.
Rum: You can use light, dark or coconut rum like Malibu.
Grenadine syrup: This provides the best way to sweeten the punch up with a great grenadine taste. Another great grenadine substitute? Pomegranate juice and simple syrup. Mix together 2 parts simple syrup and 1 part pomegranate juice.
Fresh or maraschino cherries: I used fresh cherries although the maraschino cherries works just as good. You can also garnish with an orange slice if you wish.
Cooking is a chance to be creative! Have fun with it and feel free to make your own variation.

Equipment can have a big impact on how a recipe turns out. Stone bakeware takes longer to heat up than metal pans, and also retain heat for longer, which could make the recipe more watery, or burnt on the outsides.
