Forget the non-alcoholic brand name punch, or the versions made with vodka, gin or tequila. Real, traditional Hawaiian punch is made with only rum. While no one knows the true origins of Hawaiian rum punch, it is commonly served in Hawaiian bars and restaurants. Traditionally rum punch contains rum, ginger ale, grenadine and a variety of fruit juices. While there are different versions of Hawaiian punch depending on the establishment, the most widely accepted version believed to be the original includes both light and dark rum.
Pour the guava juice, orange juice and pineapple juice into a large bowl or pitcher filled halfway with ice.
Add the grenadine and ginger and the light rum. Stir well.
Pour the dark rum over the rest of the rum, allowing it to sink it on its own, or stirring it in if you prefer. Serve and enjoy.
You can use other types of fruit juice if you do not have one of the fruit juices available.
