Ingredients for pineapple rum punch on a counter.

This super simple pineapple rum drink only requires 4 ingredients.

  • Bacardi Rum – While any brand of rum will do the trick, I like to use Bacardi. I think it yields the best result!
  • Pineapple Juice – Gives your cocktail that signature sweet and slightly tangy tropical flavor.
  • Orange Juice and Lime Juice – Pairs well with the pineapple juice and highlights the fruity quality.

Use a cocktail shaker to ensure all of the ingredients in this pineapple punch recipe are evenly mixed.

  1. Place all ingredients in cocktail shaker or cup, mix and pour over ice.


  • Use a flavored rum to add another layer to your rum punch. Bacardi has a pineapple rum that would work well, or Malibu coconut rum is also a great option!
  • Add extra bubbly dimension to this cocktail by adding some sparkling water. Plain sparkling water works fine, or you could use a citrus flavored seltzer for more of that citrus goodness.
  • Create a “sunset” effect by using some red grenadine syrup. Don’t mix it fully into the drink for the best gradient.
  • If you’re really looking to beat the heat, pour the ingredients into a blender with ice and pulse until combined to make a slushie version of this rum pineapple punch.

  • Don’t want to water down your cocktail? Make one of these ahead of time and pour it into an ice tray, then pop it in the freezer. Use the rum punch ice cubes to keep your drink cold without thinning out the flavor.
  • Add fun garnishes like cute straws or a drink umbrella to make your cocktail even more fun! You could also add a slice of pineapple, orange, or lime.
  • Feel free to make this recipe in larger quantities. A pitcher of rum punch is a great beverage choice for picnics, parties, and barbecues.
  • Want to take your presentation to the next level? Cut the top off a pineapple, hollow out the middle, and use that as a vessel for your rum punch!

Perfect for the summer but tasty all year round, this is your new favorite drink with pineapple juice and rum.


What is rum?

This Caribbean liquor is made by fermenting and distilling sugarcane juice or sugarcane molasses, which is then often aged in oak barrels. Rum is often actually a by-product of the manufacturing of sugar.

Light rums are common ingredients in cocktails, whereas darker rums are typically enjoyed on their own, sometimes with ice.

This Pineapple Rum punch cocktail is pretty, fruity and so easy to make.

What alcohol goes well with pineapple juice?

Rum and pineapple juice are a great pairing, as evidenced by the existence of cocktails like this rum punch, the Malibu bay breeze, the Sparkling Blue Hawaiian, and more.

Any drink with pineapple juice and rum is sure to be a hit!
