Every 4th of July, my neighborhood has a parade. The kids decorate their bikes, scooters, and wagons in any kind of red, white, and blue paraphernalia they can find.
Once everyone’s bikes are ready, the kids line up at the end of the street and when the signal is given, they race all the way down the street and back just as fast as their little legs can take them. It is absolutely adorable.
While the kids are doing their sprint, those of us without small children watch on the sidelines with mimosas and bloody marys (Buffalo Bloody Mary’s are my favorite).
I tend to have an extra mimosa because it’s my birthday. You can have as many drinks as you like on your birthday, right?
What Is A Mimosa?
A classic mimosa cocktail is a champagne mixed with cold citrus juice, usually orange juice. But I think a mimosa can be made with almost any juice – as long as it’s combined with something bubbly!
What’s In a Rum Punch Cocktail?
Rum punch cocktail recipe usually consists of rum (light, dark, or coconut) and lots of fruit juice like pineapple, orange juice, lemon or lime juice and grenadine for color. Some of these can be swapped out and the amounts may vary, but these ingredients are usually the basics of a rum punch.
The most popular rum punch is Jamaican rum punch. The drink is sweet, strong, and has a generous amount of fruit flavor.
How Do You Make A Pineapple Rum Punch Cocktail?
This recipe is so easy and I am so sure you are going to LOVE it!
In a pitcher, combine orange juice, pineapple juice, lime juice, dark rum, coconut rum, white rum, and coconut water; stir.
At this point, you can refrigerate the rum punch until ready to serve.
When ready, pour your punch in champagne flutes or any other fun glasses and top with prosecco, champagne or even a dry sparkling wine.
Garnish each mimosa cocktail with a pineapple wedge, orange slices, or even cherries!
Which Champagne Is Best For This Mimosa Recipe?
The simple answer is the whatever is in your budget! I think it is best to stay on the drier side because this mimosa has so many sweet elements. I personally love using prosecco. You can find affordable brands at any grocery store.
In addition, feel free to play around with the juice flavors. Mango nectar would be lovely as would any blended orange juice. Just keep with the tropical theme and pineapple juice. Pina colada mix would also be delicious.
Other flavored rum varieties would work in place of the classic rum. Vodka can also be added to your mimosa.
Serve this pineapple rum punch mimosa cocktail in a pitcher or double it and serve it in a punch bowl! This mimosa recipe is worthy of any special occasion. It is fruity, fun and brings a big tropical taste to every sip!
