Fans of baseball will benefit from the playoff punch as it brings a taste of the tropics to the postseason to keep things cool when things get hot. Originally created to celebrate the New York Yankees’ 2009 World Series bid (which they won), it is a fun cocktail recipe. This classic drink is an excellent choice, no matter who you cheer for: it’s great when you don’t need an excuse.
In the past, Tommy Bahama Golden Sun and White Sand Rums were used in this tropical punch. However, the pop culture brand has since ended its relationship with rum. It works with both white and dark rums, so select your favorite bottles to match the recipe’s concentration of pineapple and orange. A fun spin that is easy to make is adding the dark rum float to the punch to give it a Mai Tai-inspired look. This recipe is designed for a single drink, but it’s fun for a party to make.
