Foxy's Millennium Punch

We are getting ready for our Rum Throw Down this Friday evening.  We have a lot of friends who have joined the competition.  It's going to be a fun evening.

This is a popular cocktail served on the island of Jost van Dyke.  The owner of Foxy's Tamarind Bar created this drink for the Millennium Celebration in 2000.  It is our submission for the throw down competition.


Foxy's Millennium Punch

Ingredients:
1 measure white rum
1 measure dark rum
2 measures cranberry juice
2 measures guava juice
1/2 measure lime juice
Note: We considered a measure to be 1 shot

Directions:
Pour all the ingredients over ice in a large highball glass and stir; Decorate with slices of pineapple and lime.

Enjoy!

Your photos look awesome! Does the rum throw down then become a rum fall down, sounds good to me,
Thanks for stopping by my place and saying hello...

That Girl said...

I miss being able to make your drinks! Now I just try and figure out if the NA version will be as good. Of course, they never are.

Cathy said...

I'm not a cocktail person and most of the time stay with white wine, but this is really tempting. This will be perfect for a summer BBQ.

Chef E said...

This looks great! I hear 'rum' or 'punch' in the same sentence and think of me floating on the ocean in Aruba, above sunken boats, beautiful reefs and feeding the fish...ha ha "No more cocktails for that tourist!" they said...

Michael Toa said...

Oh yeah. I so need one of these right now :)
Have a great weekend!

Eliana said...

Velva, I'm on Maui and we just bought some rum yesterday. I just might try this tropical delight that you've shared! Your having Friday rum parties/competitions sounds like a great deal of fun! Happy Mother's Day, sweetie!
