  • 1 cup dark rum
  • 1 cup spiced rum
  • 1 cup fresh grapefruit juice strained
  • ¾ cup fresh orange juice strained
  • ¼ cup fresh lemon juice strained
  • ¼ cup fresh lime juice strained
  • cup Luxardo maraschino liqueur
  • ¼ cup simple syrup
  • 2 teaspoons Peychaud's bitters
  • 1 grapefruit sliced into rounds
  • 2 oranges sliced into rounds
  • 1 lime sliced into rounds
  • For Garnish: Additional slices of citrus your choice:


  • Fill a bowl or a small saucepan with water and citrus rounds and freeze (See Notes).
  • Combine both rums, grapefruit juice, orange juice, lemon juice, liqueur, simple syrup, and bitters in a pitcher.
  • Refrigerate for 2-3 hours or overnight, covered.
  • Un-mold ice (briefly dip bottom of container in warm water) and add to punch along with citrus slices in a large bowl. Serve punch in 6-oz. glasses filled with ice. and garnished with citrus sluces.


For fun I decided to put the slices of citrus into an ice block in lieu of having them float independently. To make it work and not have them float to the top of the water (which would mean when un-molded they would be on the bottom and not be visible), I froze a quarter inch of water in a medium saucepan then layered the citrus on the frozen water and then just barely covered them with more water and froze again.
Once the citrus layer was frozen I filled the pan with another 2 inches of water and froze again. It worked beautifully; large pieces of ice melt much more slowly than ice cubes would have. Make sure you get your punch mixture cold before combining the punch and the ice and it will stay cold without having all of the ice quickly melt into the punch.
