Molly’s Rum Punch
This is an easy drink to make and many home bars will have these ingredients on hand. If your home bar doesn’t have all of these ingredients, and it should, making a Rum Punch solves two things for you: 1) It helps stock your bar with necessary ingredients; and 2) It is a delicious drink to make and enjoy!

Play around with the rum you use, experimenting with white rums as well as aged rums. Also – play around with the glassware you use. For more of a fruity drink, use a hurricane glass. If you prefer, substitute a martini glass and serve this rum punch up, for more of a cocktail feel.
