Sometimes an end-of-summer sunset can feel bittersweet. You know the number of sunsets is dwindling, yet the beauty of it never wears off. Much like those sunsets, this punch brings together bitter and sweet flavors with a combination of Campari and pineapple juice for a big pitcher cocktail that looks and tastes like those bittersweet sunsets themselves.

To ensure this punch looks like a sunset itself, you have to mix together the grenadine, rum, and Campari before gently pouring over the pineapple juice, lime juice, and ginger beer. Give everything a stir before sipping.

Pineapple Rum Sunset Punch

Serves 8

1 (20-ounce) can pineapple rings in juice, drained
1 cup grenadine
1 cup white rum
1/2 cup Campari
1 (46-ounce) can unsweetened pineapple juice, chilled
1/2 cup lime juice
1 (12-ounce) bottle ginger beer, chilled
Ice

Place the pineapple rings on a parchment paper-lined baking sheet and freeze until firm.

Combine the grenadine, rum, and Campari in a pitcher and stir until well-combined. Slowly pour in the pineapple juice, then lime juice, and finally ginger beer. Garnish the pitcher or individual glasses with the frozen pineapple rings. Serve the punch over ice.
