Although I go through how to work with fresh fruits below, I know everyone doesn’t have time to prep these somewhat unfamiliar fruits. You can use frozen or if necessary, canned, products.

To make the Easy Pineapple Mango Rum Punch, be sure you shop for these ingredients:

  • No Added Sugar! Your rum drinks might be a bit sweet.
  • Instead of fresh pineapple, mango or orange juice, you can use canned or jarred juice BUT AGAIN – No Added Sugar!
  • Frozen fruits can turn your cocktail into a frozen smoothie – especially frozen mango.
  • If serving to a group, take time to freeze some large pieces of ice that will last longer in a pitcher. You can use muffin tins, ramekins, etc. You can actually freeze edible flowers or pieces of fruit in your ice. Super hostess points there!
  • You can use any of the flavor combinations of juice that you prefer – pineapple coconut juice, lime, pineapple orange, orange mango etc…
  • Use your mint and/or ginger simple syrup to balance the sweetness if necessary.
  • You can use a splash of grenadine for color but that’s it! The grenadine will fall to the bottom and create a beautiful rosy layer.

Using Store-Bought Ingredients with No Added Sugar

Don’t worry about your punch not being sweet enough because you purchased the no-added-sugar version of the juice. Not only is the sweetness in fresh fruit a little milder, but think about it like this:

If you add the SWEETENED version of orange, mango juice, and pineapple juice, you are layering on sugar, sugar, and sugar. Sugar that you didn’t measure – It’s hard to control your taste profile if you aren’t actually adding the sugar yourself.

Also, if you used a variation of the recipe and maybe added regular ginger ale, triple sec or grenadine (which adds a pretty ombre effect) there is – JUST MORE SUGAR!

Working with Fresh Fruit

Pineapple – Although pineapple looks like a tough fruit to crack, it is actually very easy to work with. The first thing you need to do is cut off the crown. Second, cut off the bottom. You will then be able to see the pineapple’s “eyes.” These are the little brown bumps on the pineapple. You want to cut these out. Once you have done that, you can either cut the pineapple into slices or chunks. Chunks are great if you want to add them to a blender with other ingredients to make a smoothie or drink. Slices are great for putting on top of a salad or as a garnish for a cocktail.

Mango – Mango is another easy fruit to work with. The first thing you need to do is cut off the top and bottom of the mango. You will then be able to see the long, flat seed in the center of the fruit. You want to cut as close to the seed as possible so that you don’t waste any of the fruit. Once you have done that, you can either cut the mango into slices or chunks. Chunks are great if you want to add them to a blender with other ingredients to make a smoothie or drink. Slices are great for putting on top of a salad or as a garnish for a cocktail.

Coconut – Coconut is a little bit more tricky to work with, but it is still doable. The first thing you need to do is crack the coconut open. You can do this by hitting it with a hammer or a heavy object. Once you have done that, you need to remove the white flesh from the shell. You can do this by using a spoon or your hands. Once you have the flesh removed, you can either grate it or cut it into chunks. Grated coconut is great for adding to a smoothie or drink. Chunks are great for adding to a salad or as a garnish for a cocktail

What Rum Should I Use for This Rum Punch Recipe?

This recipe calls for Malibu rum There are many different variations of rum. This is because rum is made from sugar cane and the final product can vary depending on the type of sugar cane used, where it was grown, how it was processed, and what types of aging barrels were used.

I used Malibu rum in this mango pineapple rum punch recipe. If you don’t have that or prefer something else, I recommend using gold or dark rum. These types of rum will add some depth of flavor to the drink without overpowering the other ingredients.

Here is the difference in these rum varieties.

  • Dark Rum – Dark rum is made from molasses, which is a by-product of sugar production. This type of rum is typically aged longer in oak barrels, which gives it a richer flavor.
  • Gold Rum – Gold rum is made from sugar cane juice and has a lighter flavor than dark rum. It is typically aged for a shorter period of time in oak barrels.
  • Light Rum – Light rum is made from molasses and is typically distilled multiple times to remove impurities. This gives light rum a very smooth flavor.Spiced Rum – Spiced rum is made by adding spices to dark rum. The most common spices used are cinnamon, vanilla, and nutmeg.
  • Captain Morgan Rum – Captain Morgan is a spiced rum that is made by adding spices to dark rum. The most common spices used are cinnamon, vanilla, and nutmeg.
  • Pineapple, Mango, and Coconut Rum – Made by many vendors, these flavored rums are it is simply an infusion of the fruit. It gives the rum a sweet and tropical flavor.

Making This Recipe Ahead of Time

If you are feeling your tropical vibes and find yourself making a large batch for guests, make sure you have everything ready to go before they arrive. Here are some tips:

  • Juice the pineapple and mango ahead of time. If you do not have a juicer, you can also use pineapple and mango juice from the store. Just make sure it is 100% juice with no added sugar.
  • Cut up any fruit you plan on using as garnish and have it ready to go in the fridge.
  • Have all of your ingredients measured out and ready to go so you are not running around like a crazy person when your guests arrive.
