Can I make this as a mocktail?
You bet! It’s one of my favorite combinations as a mocktail. Just omit the rum and you’ll have a perfectly tart cranberry, ginger ale, and lime holiday mocktail.
It’s would be great to make in a pitcher on it’s own and allow adults to pour in their rum on their own in a party setting.
Can I make this in a pitcher?
Definitely! You’ll just need to scale this recipe a bit. Here’s are the parts of each to help with your calculations for the size container that you have:
- 4 parts lime flavored rum
- 1 parts lime juice
- 6 parts cranberry juice
- 20 parts ginger ale
For a 2 quart pitcher, you’d want to use 8 oz. or 1 cup of lime flavored rum, 2 oz. or 1/4 cup lime juice, 12 oz. or 1 and 1/2 cups cranberry juice, and 40 oz. or 5 cups of ginger ale.

Could I use cranberry flavored ginger ale?
Definitely! That’d add a great punch of cranberry flavor.
Another option would be to swap out the ginger ale for ginger beer for a more gingery and adult version of this punch.
Do I need to use lime flavored rum?
Not necessarily! It adds a good amount of lime flavor, but plain white rum is a good base as well.
Using a spiced rum might not work for this punch, though!
Can I use a different type of alcohol?
You bet! It would be great with a plain or flavored vodka as well to give you something similar to a holiday Moscow mule especially if you swap out the ginger ale to ginger beer.
