I have realized recently that the light and fruity cocktails are actually my favorite type of drink to order. Put me at the bar at a tropical vacation resort and I will probably like every drink they put in front of me – it’s all delicious!
Elsie bought me these adorable cat tiki glasses this year, and so I thought it would be fun to make the perfect tiki drink to go along with them for a summer party.
I call it a “triple” tiki punch because of the three juices that make up most of the punch, but you could swap out almost any other tropical juice flavor if one of them is not your favorite. Mix and match!
Triple Tiki Rum Punch, serves one
1 oz white rum
1 oz pineapple juice
1 oz orange juice
1 oz grapefruit juice
0.5 oz grenadine
1-2 oz of club soda or seltzer water
squeeze of lime wedge
pineapple, cherries, oranges, or limes for garnish
Add the rum, pineapple juice, grapefruit juice, orange juice, grenadine, lime juice, and seltzer into a glass. If you like your drinks a little stronger, add another ounce of rum to the drink. Mix to combine, and pour into a tiki glass filled with ice.
Add some lime, orange, or grapefruit wedges to a wooden skewer with pineapple and cherries to create some festive garnishes for your punch!
Add to your drink, and you’re ready to start sipping!

So, where’s the cabana, am I right?? I feel like the best part of tiki drinks is actually eating all the yummy fruit off the skewers, so don’t skimp on the good stuff!
You can either make these to order or multiply the recipe to keep in a pitcher nearby for self-serve drinks or refills. As if I needed an excuse to drink anything out of a cat glass, this refreshing and fruity tropical drink is perfect for your next summer party (tiki theme or not). xo. Laura

This sounds perfect for summer and I love those cat tiki cups!
So much to love about this punch. Tiki drinks have become super popular here in Boston (not the case a few years ago) but the one thing that’s been missing is cat tiki glasses. Definitely need that in my life.
Have you seen the The Pineapple Co’s Pineapple Tumbler? It would be so fun for this drink or at the Golden Girl Rum Club! http://www.urbanoutfitters.com/urban/catalog/productdetail.jsp?id=38104345&category=A_FURN_DINNERWARE
cat glass = too cute!
Yum! I’m definitely doing this for my next party, as a rum punch bowl! Thanks for the recipe!
Looks perfect! Love this idea! Can’t wait for summer 😉
I bought this mug from an awesome Tiki bar in NYC. I love it, they’re so expensive in the UK, I can’t believe how cheap you guys can get them.
I’ll certainly be whipping this up for my little ceramic kitty.

Those cat glasses are the best. And the drink looks tasty too!
Summer summer summer time!
Of course, it just got chilly again after a week of summer weather in Vancouver, so I might have sit inside and drink this to pretend it’s warmer out. YUM!

That cat glass is so cute! It would make any drink awesome. http://www.hannamarielei.com
Oooooh I love the fruit skewers! I’ve never thought of putting them in cocktails before. This is something I’m going to have to try this summer. I’m also with you on the whole tropical cocktails thing – I can’t stand ones that are too bitter
