Flavored rums have hit the market in recent years, making island-style rum punches better than ever. This one contrasts fresh tropical-fruit flavors with zippy citrus and bitters for pure refreshment -- with a kick, of course.


3 cups guava nectar
3 cups pineapple juice
1 1/2 cups melon-flavored rum
1/4 cup grenadine
3/4 cup fresh lime juice
2 teaspoons Angostura bitters
Orange or lime slices
Watermelon chunks or balls
Maraschino cherries


  1. Combine guava nectar, pineapple juice, rum, grenadine, lime juice and bitters in a large pitcher. Chill.
  2. Just before serving, add orange or lime slices, watermelon and cherries to pitcher. Serve over ice.
