After one sip, you’ll be stuck on a reef.

Rum punch is one of those things that is made a million different ways, just like Meat Loaf. A lot of the same ingredients, a few different ones, and always a unique delicious taste. In the Caribbean, when in doubt, go with rum punch.

This week’s Boat Drink recipe comes to us from our friends at the Frenchman’s Reef & Morning Star Marriott Beach Resort in St. Thomas. The resort’s Azul Pool Bar offers a refreshing Reef Rum Punch, which is made with Cruzan Raspberry Rum, Captain Morgan Silver Rum, Pomegranate Liqueur, Passion Fruit Juice and Mango juice.

I believe you can see the Azul Pool Bar from this photo. Not a bad view from its cliff-side perch on the southern shore of St. Thomas.
