Celebrate St. Paddy's Day with Cruzan Rum

See also

It’s officially St. Paddy’s Day today, but who says you have to celebrate only with Bailey’s, Guinness or Smithwicks? This holiday, we are adding some Cruzan Rum to the mix shaking up a delicious cocktail known as Cruzan Good Luck Punch.

Instead of drinking green beer, try this sweet cocktail that puts a fun island twist on the Luck of the Irish.

Here is the cocktail recipe so you may try at home tonight:

Cruzan Good Luck Punch (serves 10)


1 750ml Bottle Cruzan® Strawberry Rum

24 parts Ginger Ale

6 parts Fresh Lime Juice

6 Rosemary Sprigs, Rosemary Ice Blocks (see additional recipe below)


To Prep: Pour rum into a punchbowl and add 4 sprigs of rosemary. Give it a quick stir, making sure to fully immerse the rosemary. Let the mixture sit for one hour at room temperature. After one hour, remove the sprigs of rosemary from the bowl and discard them. Next, add the lime juice to the rosemary-infused rum and chill in the refrigerator until you're ready to serve.

To Serve: Add rosemary ice block and ginger ale to your rum punch mixture and you're ready to go! Serve over ice in a punch glass. Garnish with a small piece of rosemary sprig.

Rosemary Ice Blocks: Fill a couple of round plastic containers with water and a couple rosemary sprigs and put it in the freezer. When serving your punch, float the ice blocks in the punch bowl.
