Tropical Mexican Punch

Tropical Mexican Punch – Need a cocktail that reminds you of your Mexican Rivera or Cancun trip? This fruity adult beverage will transport you in mere minutes.

Tropical Mexican Punch ~ The Complete SavoristI am no mixologist. I have never tended bar. But I do love me a good cocktail. I usually just order one off a menu or leave the mixing to friends.

Lately I have wanted to learn more about cocktail making. I host plenty of parties and gatherings. We usually have a full bar and people just make their own drinks. I’ve flirted with the idea of making a signature drink for parties, but just haven’t done it. With Cinco de Mayo on the horizon, I thought I should get started with recipe development.

Originally this cocktail did not have tequila.  It was to be an even simpler drink of just Hawaiian Punch (a middle school favorite, Go Hawks!) and coconut rum. Simple yet delicious. But the rum wasn’t enough, enter tequila. That took this drink from tasting like juice box to a full blown adult beverage.
