Nothing jump-starts a little soirée like an over-the-top pour—and it doesn't get any merrier than this heady, Caribbean-inspired cocktail of black spiced rum with splashes of prosecco, ginger beer, and seltzer. A word to the wise: this aperitif can pack a wallop, thanks to a hefty cup of rum.


  • 8 ounces black spiced rum, such as Kraken or Captain Morgan, chilled

  • 4 ounces fresh lime juice (from 3 limes), chilled, plus wheels for serving

  • 16 ounces ginger beer, such as Fever-Tree or Q, chilled

  • 1 quart orange sherbet

  • 1 bottle (750 milliliters) dry sparkling white wine, such as prosecco brut, chilled

  • 16 ounces club soda or seltzer, chilled

  • Star-anise pods and sliced fresh ginger, for serving


  1. Combine rum, lime juice, and ginger beer in a large punch bowl. Add sherbet and pour sparkling wine and club soda over. Top with lime wheels, star anise, and ginger; serve.
