Citrus Rum Punch
No citrus fruit is left behind in this recipe! With splashes of grapefruit, orange, lemon, and lime, each sip offers a layered complexity of fruity zest. The use of two different rums deepens the flavor even more, and refreshing ginger simple syrup adds a sweetness that can be adjusted to your personal taste. The result is a wonderfully tangy rum punch. Don’t forget the cherry on top! Find the full recipe here.
