Pineapple rum drinks
Nothing brings me back to a sense of rest and vacation more than a tropical cocktail. Pineapple drinks, along with coconut and guava, are my go-to when I want to get away from the day to day hustle.
Sometimes the tropical fruity drinks can have a lot of sugar or be overly sweet so I wanted to create a pineapple punch that was toned down on the sugar side and bring in some other flavors.
Cucumber goes well with pineapple so I combine the two in this bright and refreshing pineapple cucumber rum punch.

How to make rum punch
There are a lot of rum punch recipes out there but this one is different. I use fresh pineapple, cucumber, and some celery to round it out. Blending the fresh produce instead of using canned or bottled juices keeps in more of the vitamins and fiber and less added refined sugar.
Really any fruits and vegetables can be used to make a rum punch. The recipe is simple. Chill your juices, add your rum of choice, and garnish with ice cubes and fresh fruits and even herbs!
The ratio of rum to juice is your totally your preference, but if you are not sure, start small and then add a little more while tasting as you go! You will find the right blend for you and your guests.

Pineapple punch rum recipe
Step one: In a blender, combine pineapple, cucumber, and celery. Add water and blend until fully broken down. Let sit in fridge for 10 minutes to settle.
Step two: Skim foam from top and add to pitcher or store in fridge up to 3 days. This makes approximately 4.5 cups of juice.
Step three: When ready to serve the punch, add limeade and rum to the juices. If it is too strong, dilute out with sparkling water to your liking.
Step four: Serve with garnish ice cubes. Enjoy responsibly!
If you are an avid “bruncher,” this pineapple rum punch is for you! Grab all your friends and gather around for some drinks. Let’s take mimosas away and start serving rum punches!
The best brunch drinks are those that are fun, festive, and delicious. This easy rum drink is all of these things and more! Perfect for bridal and baby showers too.
To make this punch even more “extra,” garnish with fancy ice cubes. I use a silicone mold like this one to make ice cubes out of sparkling water and include slices of pineapple and cucumber. These are not only fun for punch but think about adding them to your regular water or iced tea!
You can also use them to make cool treats like these edible shot glasses too!
Do I have to use fresh pineapple?
I prefer it but I know that it is not always possible. Feel free to use pineapple juice. You might even find some cucumber and celery juice already made in your produce section:)
Can I make this ahead of time?
Sure can! I wouldn’t make it more than 2 days in advance and I would leave the rum out until ready to serve.
There is a lot of foam when I blend the pineapple, how do I fix it?
Fresh pineapple will foam when you blend it so let the juice chill in the fridge and then skim it off. It won’t hurt if you leave it in there too:)
Can I use another spirit than rum?
Yes! I prefer rum with this but feel free to use tequila or vodka too!
If you need to serve this punch inside or outside, this pitcher is perfect because it is shatterproof and plastic but looks like glass.
