Tropical Vodka Punch

Our tropical vodka punch is a simple 5-ingredient vodka and rum drink that takes minutes to prepare. Making it the perfect party punch for a crowd!

Party punch, it’s a simple cocktail that’s been popular for decades. Everyone has their own concoction, and I’m no different.

I can’t take total credit for this one. An old friend introduced me to this drink about 20 years ago.

While the drink is tasty, it’s a strong alcoholic punch that has a kick that can’t be denied.

Tropical vodka punch served in mugs with fresh fruit.
Fresh fruit makes the perfect garnish for this party punch.

In the meantime, let’s get into the kitchen and start mixing beverages. Which, turns out, is one of my favorite things to do.

We like to serve this drink in mugs instead of cocktail glasses.

How to make tropical vodka punch?

First, start by slicing the fresh fruit you wish to add to the rum and vodka mixed punch.

We used fresh oranges and Maraschino cherries. The fruit is optional, but using it adds a ton of color to the drink.

Fresh fruit added to a glass pitcher.
The fruit will eventually become infused with the vodka and rum.

Next, grab a large pitcher or punch bowl. Place the ice cubes and the fruit slices into the dish.

Then, pour in the tropical fruit punch, rum, and vodka. Last, stir and serve the chilled cocktail.

Rum, vodka, and punch added to the pitcher.
Add everything to the pitcher and stir, such an easy recipe!

That’s it, your tropical vodka punch is done! Kim and I remind you to enjoy this beverage responsibly and wish you all the best 🙂

What to mix with fruit punch vodka?

Typically a fruit punch vodka goes well from most tropical flavors like, pineapple, mango, papaya, and kiwi fruit. Also, you can add rum to the mixed drink for added flavor and alcohol content.

What’s cheap alcoholic punch?

Usually a mid to low shelf vodka or rum mixed with pineapple juice, coconut water, and/or fruit punch.
