Rum Punch Alternatives and Add-Ons:
- Add mulling spices to the mix for an extra spicy punch!
- Experiment with spiced rum or flavored rums such as pineapple!
- For an extra festive touch, add cranberries to the mix, make sprigs of rosemary and cranberries for garnish.
- Use fresh squeezed orange juice in place of store-bought.
To me, it is the cinnamon sticks that make this homemade rum punch extra special. Do NOT skimp on adding them!
