  • 2 bottles (25 ounces each) blood orange juice, chilled
  • 3 cans (12 ounces each) natural orange soda (such as San Pellegrino Aranciata), chilled
  • 3 tablespoons fresh lime juice
  • 8 ounces light rum (such as Appletons)
  • 5 dashes bitters
  • 1 blood orange or orange, cut into 1/4-inch-thick wedges and frozen


  1. Fill ice cube trays with 1 1/2 cups orange juice, and freeze. To make punch, stir remaining orange juice, soda, lime juice, rum, and bitters into a 16-cup punch bowl. Before serving, add frozen orange slices. Add ice cubes as needed to keep chilled.

Cook's Notes

Freeze blood orange wedges, and float them in the punch to keep it cold without diluting it.

    This recipe preview said, "Blood-Orange Punch This nonalcoholic pink drink is a great treat for children during festive occasions." If you look in the actual recipe, it lists light rum as an ingredient. NOT a drink for children.

    What are "5 bitters" - is that 5 drops of bitters?
