I served this for Mardi Gras festivities. I think it came from Southern Living. It does the trick. Adjust fruit punch/rum amounts to your taste.
- 32 ounces bottles red fruit punch
- 1 (6 ounce) can frozen limeade concentrate, thawed
- 1 (6 ounce) can frozen orange juice concentrate, thawed
- 1 1⁄3 cups light rum
- 1 1⁄3 cups dark rum
- Stir together all ingredients.
- Serve over ice.
We had some friends stop by after our local Mardi Gras Parade was over. I served this delicious punch to celebrate the occasion. It has been a long time since I have had a Hurricane but this tasted just the way I remember it. Beautiful bright red color with a strong fruit flavor laced with rum. Let the good times roll.
Well I really didnt care for this. I am sipping on some atm and I really had to modify it to suit my tastes. I think just with the bottled fruit punch and the concentrates, it has to much of a "processed" taste to it instead of a fresh tropical taste that I normally like in my cocktails. I had to add in some fresh pineapple juice along with some sliced fruit, banana, mango and melon liqueurs and I can still taste the "processed" taste in the background, but its better. Thanks for the recipe tho, I always enjoy making new drinks.
I took one sip of this and looked and hubby and said "oh....this is bad. Verrrrrrry bad!" Tee hee! Very tasty! I omited the rum from the pitcher and just added it to the adult's glasses. (That way the kiddos could pretend they got somethin' somethin' special too!). Soooo yummy. This will be a hit for my Superbowl party. Thanks for the great recipe!
