Punchy Cocktail


  • 1 cup guava juice
  • 1 cup passion fruit juice
  • 1 cup lychee juice
  • 1/2 cup packed basil leaves, plus more for garnish
  • 1/3 cup fresh-squeezed key lime (or regular lime) juice
  • 1/2 cup tangerine juice
  • Rum
  • Lime slices, for garnish


  1. Mix guava, passion fruit, and lychee juices (we like Ceres brand) in a large pitcher. In a saucepan, combine 1 cup of the fruit-juice mixture with the basil. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat and simmer for 5 minutes. Remove from heat, let cool, and strain, discarding basil.
  2. Pour infused juice back into pitcher, and stir in lime and tangerine juices. Add 1 cup rum. Ladle over ice and garnish with basil and lime.
