How to Make Cinerama Luau Punch

Aloha!

I needed to bring a drink to pass to a pool party recently.  One easy way to make drinks for a crowd is to make a punch.  You can make the punch in advance, and your guests can help themselves during the party.  I took a look at the Tiki+ app that I have on my IPod, and found Cinerama Luau Punch.  Cinerama Luau Punch was invented in 1958 by Don the Beachcomber for the premier of the film Cinerama South Seas Adventure.

To make Cinerama Luau Punch combine:

  • 8 oz unsweetened pineapple juice
  • 8 oz fresh lemon juice
  • 8 oz fresh lime juice
  • 8 oz fresh orange juice
  • 2 oz orange Curacao
  • 1/2 bottle (13 oz) white wine
  • 1 and 1/2 bottles ( 38 oz) gold Jamaican rum

Mix everything in a punch bowl with ice.

How to Make Rum Punch Cupcakes

Aloha,

Let's Tiki is now one year old!  I can't believe how fast the first year has gone. I've had such a great time meeting all the great people in the tiki community and look forward to many more years and many more new friends.

 

Every birthday needs a cake. When I saw these cupcakes I knew right away they would be perfect.  The cake itself has the perfect amount of sweetness.  The dark rum makes a great addition, but isn't too overpowering.  The rum is also perfectly balanced with the vanilla.

I used coruba rum for the cake and the glaze. Coruba is becoming my new favorite dark rum.  I had used Meyers for years, but Coruba isn't quite as harsh as Meyers.  It has more of a molasses flavor that is very enjoyable.  When cooking with wine I was always taught to use a wine that you would drink. The same holds true when cooking with rum.  A good rum will make your recipe so much better.

The cake is then complemented nicely with the freshly whipped cream frosting.  The pineapple and the cream is genius.  I just couldn't stop eating these cupcakes, and I'm normally not a big cake eater.

So make up a batch of these cupcakes for your next party.  They will be a hit!  For the complete recipe visit http://annies-eats.net.

Mahalo!
