For Punch

Yield: 8 servings

  • 8 hibiscus tea bags
  • 5 cups water
  • 4 cups pineapple juice
  • 1.5 cups white rum
  • 8 cilantro sprigs, for garnish
  • pineapple chunks, skewered, for garnish

For Ginger Simple Syrup

  • 8" piece of fresh ginger
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 cup water

Create Ginger Simple Syrup

Peel the ginger and slice it into very thin pieces. Smash the pieces with the end of a knife, and add to a medium sauce pan. Add sugar and 1 cup of water. Bring to a boil, lower the heat, then simmer for about 10 minutes, covered. Let sit for 30 minutes to infuse syrup with ginger flavor. Once cool, strain the ginger out of the syrup mixture and into an airtight container.

Meanwhile, bring remaining 5 cups of water to a boil. Once boiling, turn off the heat, add hibiscus tea bags and cover. Steep for 10 minutes. Remove tea bags and pour into an airtight container. Chill until cold, about 30 minutes.
