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.

  • 4 cups guava juice
  • 4 cups orange juice
  • 4 cups pineapple juice
  • 1 cup ginger ale
