The end of summer is here and while I am very excited to see fall arrive, it's a little sad to say goodbye to those long, lazy summer days. Everyone is already back-in-school and it's go-go-go all over again. But even though we are all back to the grind, there are still over 5 weeks of summer left and I am celebrating all the way till the very end by having weekend end-of-summer celebrations at my house with a few friends.

I am by no means a big alcohol drinker, but I do enjoy having a few bottles of my favorites at home for the occasional evening cocktail or for these weekend get togethers. One of my favorites has always been Bacardi Superior Rum because it's so versatile. I can make a quick rum and coke which happens to be a favorite of mine, or I can whip up a dozen other drinks with it. 

Using Bacardi Superior Rum and the new Bacardi Banana Flavored Rum, I whipped up my favorite fruit punch recipe that uses chunks of fresh fruit to give it that really delicious and crisp fruit flavor. This is one of my favorites to make because it's quick and easy so I can make it even if I only have a few minutes to spare. Plus it's just really delicious and perfect on a really hot summer day.

Bacardi Fruit Punch
(1 liter)

1/2 cup Bacardi Superior Rum and Bacardi Banana Flavored Rum mixed
1-2 ripe peaches sliced
1-2 oranges sliced
fresh cherries
2 cups of punch
1 1/2 cups of pineapple juice

Slice fruit and place into pitcher, add punch and pineapple juice. Add Bacardi Superior Rum and Bacardi Banana Flavored Rum and give a good stir. Serve over ice and top with a few fresh cherries. 

Bacardi Superior and Bacardi Banana Flavored spirits are perfect for summer rum punches. I tend to go a little light with how much I put into any drinks but you can alter the recipe to your liking. You can also add any other fresh fruits that are in season or on sale. 

I love adding the big chunks of peach and other fruits because they taste delicious at the end, still crisp and sweet but with that extra immersed flavor of the punch. Seriously, alcohol immersed fruit should be a thing.
