  • 6 Ounces blue curaco
  • 6 Ounces pineapple rum
  • ounces Ol Smoky Moonshine (plain) or grain alcohol
  • 32 oranges, sliced thin
  • 2 limes, sliced thin
  • 1 lemon, sliced thin
  • 2 Teaspoons white sugar
  • 2 quarts lemonade


Toss orange, lemon, and lime slices with the sugar in a Glad ziptop gallon bag.

Preheat a charcoal grill to 350f.  In my Smoke Hollow grill this takes about 3/4 of a chimney filled with Kingsford blue bag briquettes.

Remove the slices from the bag (retain the bag) and grill both sides until nice grill marks form, about 3-5 minutes. Return the slices to the bag.

Mix the lemonade, curaco, pineapple rum, and moonshine together. Add the fruit and the juices, to the punch.

Refrigerate for 1 hour or until chilled. Serve over ice with the fruit as a garnish.

Drink responsibly and enjoy!
