Add in passion fruit flavored rum and coconut flavored rum, and you’ll be feeling the sand between your toes in no time at all.

How Do I Make A Mocktail Caribbean Punch?

I’ve had several readers ask if this can be made with out the alcohol. The answer? Yes, it sure can! Simply omit the rums, and add some coconut juice in their place.

I use taste to determine the amount of coconut juice to add, but it is usually comes out to be about 1 shot glass worth.

Is this prepared lemonade or the county time lemonade powder? Sounds great for my girls group. We're always trying something new/different.

I used Simply Lemonade already prepared but either one would work just fine! I hope y'all enjoy it!

What do you suggest in place of the sunny d fruit punch. None of my stores carry it. Thank you

Hi Morgan, Hmm... that's a great question! First of all, did you check Amazon to see if they had Sunny D for a reasonable price? They also offer SunnyD Singles To Go Water Drink Mix that you mix with water. If ordering it isn't an option, while I am not 100% sure this would work, you could try making up some orange-flavored Kool Aid and add a bit of lemonade to it, then add it to the cocktail. Also, I would think any other similar-to-SunnyD orange-flavored drink should work. I'm sorry I can't give you a definite answer, but I am thinking either of those would work. Just add it to the other ingredients slowly and go by taste until you get a flavor you like. Let me know if you try it and how it turns out! And be sure to check back as other readers may have a better answer for you, too!
