End Summer with a Kick on National Rum Punch Day!September 20, 2013 By: Mary-Kate Dunphy
Instead of mourning the end of summer, September 20th gives you a reason to embrace the autumn months with National Rum Punch Day!
Rum punch has been around nearly as long as rum itself. This mixed up batch of rum and fruit juice has been around since the 18th century and people still love it today. Rum made in the new world was originally mixed with fruit juices and beer to create grog, which today, some like to call jungle juice or a fish bowl.
To celebrate, why not host a promotional party saying goodbye to the warm weather? Perhaps a luau themed promo with tropical Rum Punches… who doesn’t love one last hoorah before summer’s up. It’s definitely something to think about.
But today make sure to serve up some rum cocktails that are meant to be shared in honor of National Rum Punch Day. There are countless types of rum punches with all different flavors, try one like the Bermuda Rum Sizzle Punch below!
