In a large pitcher, mix the pineapple, orange and lime juices. Add the rum and set aside.
For each individual serving glass, pour in one Tablespoon of grenadine syrup. Fill the glass with ice.
Prepare your garnishes beforehand by skewering citrus slices and cherries on toothpicks or cocktail sticks.
When ready to enjoy, pour the rum punch into each glass to allow for a sunset effect.
Garnish and serve.
This recipe makes enough cocktails to almost fill a 2-quart Pitcher, about 1.5 quarts.
I have taken this punch to a pool party more than once, transporting it in a big 1-gallon thermal jug! Make sure you have plenty of extra ingredients (I thread them onto drink skewers and put them into a container before I arrive), I promise people will be asking for more and more and more!
One serving is 8-ounces, but hurricane glasses are usually 16-ounces. So keep that in mind when making these. This recipe makes 6 servings. So in other words, if you're going to be serving this in big red Solo cups, don't expect to get 6 full plastic cups.
A quick note about dark rum vs. light rum. You can definitely use white or light rum, but dark rum has been aged longer and has a bolder flavor than it's light counterparts. It's actually more typical to find a light or white rum in mixed drinks, while dark rum is usually for sipping. Use whatever you have on hand!
If you don't have grenadine, you can use the liquid from the jar of maraschino cherries.
