Dr Pepper Snapple Group® sponsored this post. All opinions are mine and mine alone. For me, as I am sure for many moms, November and December are two of the busiest months of the year. I gladly take on the flurry of activities that fill my time at the end of each year. I love the holiday season. I thrive on it! I am a social gal, so I love planning and attending the parties that fill many hours between Thanksgiving and Christmas.
I also must admit, I do love the shopping too! There is something about walking up and down the aisles of my favorite store, shopping list in hand. It is of no consequence if I am searching for food, gifts, or household items. I love it! It is like a treasure hunt each time. And my daughter is just like me! We will often head to Walmart, split the shopping list and race to find our items before the other one does!
One thing is certain, no matter who has drinks on their list, we know what the family loves! We always stock up on 7UP, Canada Dry, and Squirt. 7UP is a soda I drank as a kid. I love the light and refreshing taste and the way the bubbles tickle my nose! One of my favorite party drinks is one I have been serving for years! This Spiced Rum Punch Recipe is the perfect holiday drink! And this signature drink isn’t just for adults! All I have to do is omit the rum and add a bit of cinnamon and the kids go crazy for it! That way, I just make two batches of the same recipe. This saves me time and money!
If there is one thing I don’t forget in the chaos of the holidays is giving back to others. My mother made sure we were taught this and I have done so with my own kids. One of my first memories of giving to others was with The Salvation Army. My mother would remind my sister and I to tuck some of our allowance into our purses when we went Christmas shopping. We would drop the money into the Salvation Army red kettle. My kids get as much joy from slipping their dollar bills into the slot in that kettle as I did.
I am so thrilled that Walmart and the Dr Pepper Snapple Group has made it easier than ever to give. Look for specially marked packages of 7UP, Canada Dry, and Squirt at Walmart- with every purchase there will be a donation to The Salvation Army. It is that easy! You just Buy-Drink-Give! Now that you know how to give back this holiday season: onto the Spiced Rum Punch Recipe!
Here is what you will need:
- 1 Shot Spiced Rum
- 4 oz. Pineapple Juice
- Splash of Orange Juice
- Splash of Pomegranate Juice
- 4 oz. 7UP
- In a shaker filled with ice, pour spiced rum, pineapple juice, orange juice, and pomegranate juice.
- Shake gently
- In a fresh glass with ice, strain spiced rum punch. Top with 4 oz of 7UP.
- Garnish with cherries and a slice of orange
What is your favorite holiday drink you make with 7UP, Canada Dry or Squirt? I would love to hear in the comments below!

This would be perfect for the next party. I love rum drinks.
Ashvin saysDecember 22, 2017 at 7:12 pm
I need this right now! I am the designated drink maker for parties and this will make them more jealous of me, LOL. Definitely going to steal your recipe, love it!
Ana De- Jesus saysDecember 22, 2017 at 8:13 pm
Your recipe for spiced rum punch couldn’t have come at a better time. You see I was out earlier at a restaurant and was amazed that there was no Christmas drinks on the menu. How I would have loved some punch to celebrate the festivities x
Aashima saysDecember 22, 2017 at 9:12 pm
This is one amazing drink. I have to give this a shot. I love beverages with peach, this seems like a great one. Thanks for the recipe.
Denay DeGuzman saysDecember 22, 2017 at 9:34 pm
Oh my goodness! I love that I have all of the ingredients for your fabulous drink on hand – even the pomegranate juice! Woo-hoo!!! I’ll soon be heading into the kitchen to make one of these tasty cocktails for my husband and myself. Tonight is a gift-wrapping extravaganza, and I believe we deserve a delicious drink while doing that!
Susie saysDecember 22, 2017 at 11:39 pm
This looks amazing! I’m gonna try to make it tonight 😀
Joan Cajic saysDecember 23, 2017 at 2:51 am
Never had spiced rum before and I don’t even know why, I thought it was because I hate the smell of rum but it’s gin that I hate, so I guess this just right for Christmas.
corinne & kirsty saysDecember 23, 2017 at 3:59 am
oooh this punch looks lush! I’d love to try it out! rum is one of my fav liquors!
Dina Demarest saysDecember 23, 2017 at 7:08 am
I love a good mixed drink. This one looks amazing and like it’s made just for me. I can’t wait to try it.
Andrea saysDecember 23, 2017 at 9:29 am

Jenny saysDecember 23, 2017 at 10:57 am
If there’s one thing I learned from this post, it’s that Dr. Pepper owns Snapple! Also, this drink recipe looks delicious. I will definitely be trying this on New Year’s Eve.

Claudia Krusch saysDecember 24, 2017 at 12:55 am
This spices rum punch is sure to be a hit at my holiday party. I have been looking for a few new recipes to try. I like to mix 7UP and peppermint schnapps.
Savannah Pham saysDecember 24, 2017 at 4:03 am
Did you say spice rum punch?! I love punches especially during party seasons – add some rum and it’ll be a big hit! For adults that is 😉
mycraftingworld saysDecember 24, 2017 at 6:23 am
It sounds like a nice drink. I grew up on 7Up too. I like the light taste of it. I like the way you divide your food list up and shop that is cute. Merry Christmas
Tiffany Haywood saysDecember 24, 2017 at 10:17 am
This sounds absolutely delicious! I love that it has a bit of spice to it..
Vanessa Palma saysDecember 24, 2017 at 11:38 am
This look so delish! I’m adding this to my list of cocktails for my Christmas party. I can’t wait to try it on our friends.
Melina saysDecember 24, 2017 at 5:40 pm
Personally I do not drink Alcohol, but your rum drink looks very pretty and very tropical! Perhaps I should try a virgin option.
Karley Moore saysDecember 25, 2017 at 8:52 pm
I’ve been looking for a new cocktail. I’ll make this at my next party!
Jennifer L saysDecember 26, 2017 at 1:33 am
Ohh this looks so good! And definitely up my mom’s alley. I love the use of a spice rum rather than your usual rum. Definitely want to make a batch for New Year’s eve but will definitely have to keep a close eye as these can get addicting.
Blair villlanueva saysDecember 26, 2017 at 12:39 pm
This is cool drink. Would be perfect chill this summer, And of course for will add this to our New years even drinks.
Becca Talbot saysDecember 26, 2017 at 3:38 pm
I love Spiced Rum – Captain Morgans and Sailor Jerry are my spirits of choice, in fact. So I think I’d love this cocktail! Though I might have to swap the orange garnish for a lemon, as I’m not a fan of oranges lol x
Mary Songer saysDecember 26, 2017 at 6:33 pm
This year was more about chocolate martinis but we did use Canada Dry Ginger Ale for another drink. We mixed it with Fireball whiskey and topped it with whipped cream and sprinkled a bit of cinnamon on top. Really good. Over all it was a wonderful party.
Marissa Hammers saysDecember 27, 2017 at 2:42 pm
I totally need this after the holidays. Great combination of ingredients.
Lily Ashley saysDecember 28, 2017 at 8:52 am
Oh that rum punch looks so tasty! I would love to try this on new year’s eve!
Lauryn R saysDecember 28, 2017 at 11:24 pm
This drink sounds delicious! I do not drink often, but on the holidays I always make an exception. Especially when they are as good as this! Thanks for sharing. 🙂
Michele Pineda saysDecember 29, 2017 at 3:17 pm
I like the taste of rum, but never thought about it during the holidays! This sounds really good I think I will try it out on New Years and see how it goes, thanks for sharing!
Esperanza Gailliard saysDecember 29, 2017 at 11:49 pm
Sounds like something I would love to make minus the alc0hol. 😀
Mary Songer saysJanuary 2, 2018 at 6:58 pm
My new favorite drink is going to be this one. Very tasty. I served it over the holidays and it was a big hit. I did it the way you did, one with rum and one without. Thanks for the recipe.
sherry fowler saysJanuary 4, 2018 at 8:15 pm

DailyWoman (Lacey) saysJanuary 5, 2018 at 11:37 pm
I am not a drinker but I have to say this one sounds delicious. It would be great for a hot day by the pool or on the lake.
Sarah Bailey saysJanuary 16, 2018 at 8:07 pm
Now this sounds like a lovely winter punch, there is something about spices at this time of year that just make it.
Jo-Ann Brightman saysJanuary 16, 2018 at 11:04 pm
I love alcoholic drinks with fruit juice. My daughter-in-law loves rum and I might surprise her with this drink.
Dana Rodriguez saysJanuary 18, 2018 at 7:14 pm

I’d like to try the non-alcoholic version with the cinnamon it sounds good, I’m still adding pumpkin pie spice, etc., to everything!!!
Sarah L saysJanuary 21, 2018 at 10:41 pm
This looks very tasty. I donate to my local food bank.
