Pirate Punch

Inspired by Carnival Cruises, this Pirate Punch is sweet, fruity, and tastes just like the tropics! Makes a pitcher for 8 or double the batch!

A good friend tells you about the last great cocktail he or she had.

A great friend bribes the wait staff to write down the exact recipe of a treasured cocktail and scans the napkin over to you whilst still on a cruise ship.

Casey Markee, SEO guru, is a great friend. Along with cocktail recipes, he regularly advises me on the latest in Google patents, penalties, rankings, and other things to cross your eyes.

Let me tell you why you should make my version of Pirate Punch, though, and not the original.

After a glass or two of Carnival’s original Pirate Punch, you’ll think you’re on a cruise ship in your own kitchen.

That cocktail is STRONG.

I basically doubled all the juice (and also tried tripling the juice, but I think doubling does the job). If you want to walk the plank, though, just cut the juice in half.

This is great for summer parties, bridal showers, New Year’s Eve, and International Talk Like a Pirate Day. It’s fruity, sweet, and oh-so refreshing!

Save this Pirate Punch to your “Drinks” Pinterest board!

  1. Don’t like cruise ships but this looks like one of those “perfect for the pool” drinks. You can’t go wrong with these ingredients!!! Two rums with amaretto!

  2. What a great combo, Meggan! This is perfect for a little “vacation” at home! Can’t wait to give this a try soon. Thanks for the recipe! :-)
