A fruity rum punch recipe with both dark rum and coconut rum. This delicious cocktail recipe comes straight from Steamboat Bills restaurant in Lake Charles Louisiana.

We visited Lake Charles to see my sister. They took me out at my request to experience some authentic Louisiana food. Found it!

And I loved the rum cocktail I ordered so much I brought the recipe home for you. 🙂

Steamboat Bill’s is a fun place to eat and drink if your in the area. Looking for shrimp, crayfish or alligator bites? Ask for a Bayou rum punch to chase em down. So good!

Read all about Steamboat Bill’s Restaurant story here. It’s very inspiring. The founders are true louisianans with a strong spirit. They created a restaurant chain with a great reputation for southern cooking.

Our Version:

Steamboat Bill’s is a casual restaurant that serves a great goodtime and excellent food with parchment paper and plastic baskets.

Your punch is served in a plastic cup with no embellishments.

I decided to class it up a bit for our ‘at home’ version with a real glass and a simple garnish. I also had to figure out their recipe by remembering the taste. This is close. Might even be better. I’m pretty proud of my version.

To make it even more "bayou" you could use Bayou Rum, it is distilled in Lacassine, LA, just a short drive East of Lake Charles. They have several varieties of rum that could be used for this.

Hi Shannon, This is an excellent suggestion. Thank you so much for taking the time to stop by and let us know about 'Bayou Rum.' That would be fun to explore. How cool that it it made so close to Lake Charles!
