This refreshing frozen treat is one I’ve been making for quite a while! It’s an adaptation of a wedding punch recipe from a close friend of my mother’s, Jimmie Nell Springer.

When Craig and I first started catering back in the early 1990’s, we did a lot of weddings; and we needed a really good punch recipe! Jimmie Nell graciously gave us hers.

We had some leftover punch still in the freezer after a wedding, so we threw it in a blender, added some dark rum, and our rum punch was born!

As my kids were growing up, we spent summers outside by the pool.

We always had a houseful of both kids and adults! I made plenty of batches of rum punch, but I needed something for the kids. I made up a batch, left out the rum, and poured it into popsicle molds.

It was an instant hit!

The kids liked it so much, I decided to make some with the rum for the adults. They became a staple around the pool in the summer!

I haven’t made them since we moved to Florida; but this is turning out to be such a hot summer, I thought it would be a good time to revive the tradition!

How to make rum punch ice pops

This may be one of the easiest recipes ever. You mix orange juice concentrate, lemonade concentrate, unsweetened pineapple juice, peach nectar, simple syrup, and ginger ale. If you are making it for the kids, stop there. If you are making it for the adults, add the rum. I use 2 cups, but you could certainly use more or less to suite your own taste.
