I rarely write reviews but I had to for this. I made it for a luncheon and we all agreed it was one of the best recipes we ever had! Everyone wanted the recipe. And we all are experienced in the kitchen! item not reviewed by moderator and published
Made this by the gallons for a big christmas party...big hit! It's a bit sweet but only a couple of people thought so...don't change the recipe, it's really good! Will become a staple at our parties year-round! Oh, and I used 1.5 cups dark rum and 1.5 cups light rum for each batch, worked great..cheap rum, too! item not reviewed by moderator and published
All I have to say is OMG!!!!!!!!!!!!! I am not a girly drink kind of girl, but this is a party must have. You can't even taste the alcohol. This is so fresh and tasty ! Thanks Bobby Flay item not reviewed by moderator and published
Well, Bobby, I cheated and used Realime, bottled orange juice and canned pineapple juice along with Cruzan Light Rum and Cruzan Dark Rum. I had this stuff. We arrived home from Sandals Negril yesterday and their punch is spot on yours! Outstanding! I have tried for a couple of years to duplicate the stuff from Jamaica and this does the trick. I can't imagine how good this would be as you stated it using fresh stuff. Thanks from Kansas... item not reviewed by moderator and published
Very simple to make, very easy to remember, can be made ahead of time and re-shake once ready to serve. Next time, I'm gonna skip the Jamaican White Rum, I wasn't impressed tasting the Jamaican White Rum by itself, so I'll use either spiced rum or double the Light Rum. Regardless, I'm gonna spread the word on this one. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Very nice Bobby ;) My husband's 40th Birthday Party thanks you! :) BTW Couldn't find Jamaican White Rum so I substituted the Appleton Jamaican Dark Rum and it's tasty as well ;) Thanks again :) Dawn item not reviewed by moderator and published
I made this and cut the grenadine in half as suggested by others and it was terrible. It was a waste of alot of Rum! item not reviewed by moderator and published
I was looking for a recipe that mimicked the boat drinks I've had in the Caribbean. This comes very close. I added Malibu rum to give the drink a coconut flavor. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Normally, I don't take anyone's time to enter review/comment re: beverages. Not this recipe. Thanks Bobby. The use of rum plus other ingredients made 700 people at my granddaughter's college graduation an unexpected success.... I read all other reviews prior to this of mine. Some comments stated your recipe was too sweet, too strong, etc. I admire and reinforce your skills. Any person using one of your recipes for guests IS RESPONSIBLE to first make and taste. If the person/cook does not like ...in this comment YOUR RECIPE PRODUCT...they are responsible for their own skills and tasting abilities. For myself, I watch your show, I down load your recipe then make and taste. If everything is wonderful, I make your recipes for others. Thanks Bobby item not reviewed by moderator and published
The only thing I did different was use Grace Strawberry Syrup (this is what we use in Jamaica) instead of grenadine and took out the orange juice. IT is strong and delicious! Good Job Bobby Flay. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Easy and tasty! I actually only had a 12 oz bottle of grenadine, but I think it was for the best because it might have been too sweet otherwise. Be sure to use fresh limes, and I even put some lime zest in there for extra lime. I served it in glass pitchers with orange slices and put a bottle of seltzer water next to it (for people who wanted to dilute) and each bottle of rum, in case anyone wanted it extra spiked. item not reviewed by moderator and published
This punch is by far the best!! I had my girlfriends over for jerk chicken, rice and peas, fried plantains, and this rum punch we had punch before, during and after dinner. Thank you Bobby. All my girls wanted the recipe. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I picked up this recipe in Jamaica. It is the real deal! Easy to remember too! 1,2,3,4. 1 part sour, 2 parts sweet, 3 parts strong, 4 parts weak. Everybody loves it! item not reviewed by moderator and published
Bob Used your rum punch it at my daughter's wedding for adults, it was loved by all. I did one thing different and added lime sherbet. It was a BIG HIT. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I made this for a summer party and had to dilute it with a 1 litter bottle of seltzer water. The grenadine adds a nice color, but it was too Hawaiian punch for my friends until we added the extra water, which meant we needed to add more booze. Once we did that, it was really yummy. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Bobby's Rum Punch has become a standard at our summer parties. I usually use about half the grenadine, though. I also recommend using less alcohol than the recipe calls for - the first year I made this punch I was VERY unhappy with Bobby Flay the next morning. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I prepared this punch for my best friend's birthday party this May and everyone absolutely loved it. It was very simple to make and took less than five minutes to prepare. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Excellent recipe ! Just don't try and drive after drinking. item not reviewed by moderator and published
This punch is great. The only thing I would change though would be the amount of grenadine, a half a cup or less is plenty. Other than that it's wonderful. item not reviewed by moderator and published
It was a very pleasing taste for my palates. Not too overpowering with the alcohol. Tried it once for a back yard barbecue with friends and have been giving out the recipe ever since item not reviewed by moderator and published
