Jungle Juice
Adapted  from "The "Pirates‘ House Punch Skull Crusher"
recipe  from The PiratesHouse, Savannah, GA

This is one of those adaptations created because I needed to make a small batch instead of the huge quantity described in the cookbook.  I also eliminated an ingredient or two and improvised.   This is great for a summer "Happy Hour" on your deck or in your backyard.   It does creep up on you because it doesn't taste like alcohol so be careful!   Richard loves this one when he is particularly stressed and needs to pretend he is on vacation.  Pour over ice in a tall glass.  You can add those silly paper umbrellas if you have them.

*The Pirate's House Restaurant, established mid-1700s,
was originally a rendezvous for blood-thirsty pirates and sailors.



  • 2 Cups red grapefruit juice (Ocean Spray Ruby Red)
  • 3 Cups pineapple juice (Dole)
  • 4 Cups orange juice (Tropicana)
  • 1 Cup ginger ale
  • 1 2/3 Cups Rum (could be left out for non-drinkers)
  • Fruit slices: lemon and lime (sometimes orange too!) 

Mix all in a 2 quart container.  We don’t use a blender for this usually.  Don’t add ice to the mixture but pour it over ice in a tall glass.  This drink mixture is best if left for a few days in the refrigerator.  Serve in a pretty punch bowl with the fruit floating in it for company.  

Note: The Pirates’ House strongly suggests adding maraschino cherry juice to this drink (enough to make it a pinky-orange color). We haven’t tried that because it sounded too sweet. If you try it, let us know how it is.

Enjoy!   But please don't let anyone drive after drinking this elixir!
