For a fabulous date night or relax after getting home from a hard day at the 9to9, why not forgo the standard glass of wine and whip up this romantic Sweet Strawberry Rum Punch. I know some will say “my guy will never drink something that is pink” but I promise you this – one sip and your love will be asking you to make it again.
Often I make rum punch without the ice blended in, but inspired by this Strawberry Rum Punch recipe and scorching August heat engulfing Philly right now, I figured frosty and frothy rum punch would be perfect for date night and, one sip in of this summer cocktail, I knew that it would be an icy rum punch from here on out. Added bonus – everything comes together zippy quick in the blender and with lots of fresh ingredients, what’s not to love, right?
Now – with any rum punch, you can adjust the rum to your taste with adding a bit more or less. For me, I am a rum gal but I tend to be a bit more cautious and have less of a heavy handed pour because it does have a bit of a bite as the rum will sneak up on you. To add a bit of additional sweetness, I used a little Sweet’N Low® sweetener. With all of the fruit, I have to say it is not necessarily a “skinny” punch. However, I wanted to make this delicious cocktail a bit lighter and Sweet’N Low® is perfect for those watching the waistlines and, of course, it’s diabetic friendly.
This Sweet Strawberry Rum Punch is perfect for date night and, for those nights when, perhaps, you have more than just the two of you – you can leave the rum out for the non-alcoholic version – just call it a Sweet Strawberry Punch and none will be the wiser.
