According to Wayne Curtis's 2006 book And a Bottle of Rum, the English made punch in India as early as 1673. From there, sailors took the drink "along trade routes, to Europe and on to the New World." On the way, "an astonishing number of variations surfaced."
3 sliced oranges, 1 cubed pineapple, 2 cubed mangoes, 1 cubed small watermelon (optional) and 1/4 cup torn mint leaves, for garnish
In a punch bowl, combine the amber and dark rums, apricot liqueur, Lime Syrup, pineapple juice and passion fruit juice and refrigerate until chilled, about 4 hours. Stir in the sparkling water. Add the ice and garnish with the oranges, pineapple, mangoes, watermelon and mint.
