Alix, the Rum Punch sounds fantastic. I'm going to keep that one for myself. And it's right here on D C.

OK, my favorite.

For a single drink. Multiply out for volume..

1 oz Captain morgans spiced rum
1 oz Malibu coconut rum
6 oz pineapple juice
3 oz sprite.

Mix over ice.... Very tropical, tasty without being too sweet.

Thanks for your suggestions so far.

1/2 cup water
1 cinnamon stick
1/2 cup sugar
1 lime
1 lemon
1 orange
20 halved green grapes
20 halved red grapes
1 cup pitted cherries
1 bottle fruity red wine
2 cups ice or ice ring with fruit in it

Bring the water, cinnamon, and sugar to a boil and cook for 5 minutes. Meanwhile, thinly slice the lime, lemon, and orange with the peel intact. Add the fruit to the sugar mixture and set aside to cool. Chill overnight. Place the ice in a large pitcher or punch bowl. Pour the fruit mixture over the top and add the wine.
