made this for a party this past weekend based on a recipe from www.greatpartyrecipes.com. received decent reviews. thought I'd share for those of you looking for a punch recipe without too many expensive ingredients.

Rum Ginger Punch Recipe
1/2 cup brown sugar, packed
1/2 cup water
1 large thumb-size piece fresh ginger, peeled & chopped
5 cups unsweetened pineapple juice
1 1/2 cups amber rum
2 liters (about 8 1/2 cups) grapefruit soda (such as Ting)
4 cups club soda/seltzer
Ice mold

Chill all ingredients in advance except water, brown sugar and ginger.

In a small saucepan, heat the brown sugar, water and ginger until it begins to boil. Lower the heat and simmer for about 15 or 20 minutes. Cool. Strain the ginger from the brown sugar mixture and pour the sugar-water into the punch bowl. Mix in the pineapple juice. Pour in the rum and stir. When ready to serve, add the grapefruit soda and club soda. Float an ice mold or serve over crushed ice.

Makes approx. 40 servings.
