Mix all the ingredients in a cocktail shaker and shake well to combine. Pour over ice in a glass and garnish as needed.

Caribbean Rum Punch
Who does not love a Caribbean rum punch? It is pretty enjoyable and easy to make, which explains its popularity with the masses. With this recipe, Caribbean rum punch will become your go-to cocktail. Two hours before serving the cocktails, fill an ice cube tray with juice and freeze it.
Transfer the frozen juice cubes into a short tumbler glass. Add the other ingredients to a cocktail shaker but leave out your kombucha and shake vigorously for about 15 seconds. Pour the mixture of the juice cubes into the glass before topping with kombucha and stir well. You can garnish with pineapple and cherries.
Why make a fruity mojito when you can use bubblegum instead? Add six pieces of bubblegum in a small bottle and drop in 4 or 5 pieces of fresh mint. Add half a cup of simple homemade syrup, mud the mint leaves, and close. After this, add bubblegum mint simple syrup, lime juice, and rum into a cocktail shaker.
Add corn syrup to one plate and colored sugar to another, and rim the top of each glass. Add the mixture from the cocktail shaker, and three mint leaves to a glass before topping with ice and soda water. You can garnish with a few pieces of bubblegum.
