This Papa Doble Punch is loosely based on the Hemingway Daiquiri or Papa Doble cocktail. This variation uses Maraschino Cherry Infused Rum. This infusion is simple to make with ingredients found out local grocery stores. The recipe for Maraschino Cherry Infused Rum can be found with the delicious summery Cherry Limeade drink. It is also used in the Maraschino Cherry Sour cocktail and the Cherries Jubilee hot coffee drink.

The Papa Doble Punch is lightly sweetened with a hint of tartness in the background. It is simply refreshing for a warm day.

Papa Doble Punch Single Serve

Vanilla syrup can be found on the coffee aisle at local grocery stores. I usually use DaVinci Vanilla or French Vanilla. Another common brand is Torani. Both brands have many flavors and are available in sugar-free. I used Target brand Simply Balanced for the sparkling grapefruit juice. IZZE sparkling grapefruit juice and Perrier sparkling mineral water in grapefruit flavor are two others that I’ve used. All are terrific options

    This sounds seriously amazing. I love grapefruit & really want to try making more cocktails at home. Thanks for the great recipe!

    • Trisha, I love making cocktails at home more than I like going out for them. It’s even more fun when I’m entertaining a large group. The most important thing about making cocktails is to have fun with it. Cheers!
