Thanks for the tips and recipes everyone. The party ended up having way more in attendance than our usual soirees and I was utterly unprepared! I wanted to have the first batch of punch ready before guests arrived but I was still squeezing roughly a bagillion limes and crushing mounds of ice in the Oster Snoflake I just picked up on Etsy for 10 bucks(my new favorite toy) when people began showing up. Snacks were laid out (we tried replicating the Mai Kai pu pu platter) but I could see the natives were thirsty and getting restless and I should begin serving up drinks before I had a riot on my hands. I started with the Kapu Kai cuz it's so simple and delicious. I only intended to make a few but before I knew it a line of tiki mugs was forming and my LH151 was rapidly diminishing. Once everyone got a little teaser in their system I went back to my old stand by, a big ole batch of Rum Barrel. I really wanted to dive into something new for this occasion, which is why I posted on this thread in the first place, but as more and more guests arrived and I had to get something banged out quickly, I decided not to take chances with something I hadn't tried before and went with something I could make blindfolded. Next time I will be sure to allow myself more time for experimentation and report the results here. The Rum Barrels were a huge hit as always. I doctor the recipe a bit, just substituting the grapefruit juice with pineapple. More drinks were made throughout the night but this post is already longer than it should be.
