Spicy Pineapple Ginger Mint Punch

(serves 6-8)
You can make this punch as a non-alcoholic version by skipping the white rum and adding more ginger beer.
Ingredients
2 ½ cups fresh pineapple, roughly chopped
½ cup firmly packed fresh mint
Juice of 3 limes and 2 oranges
¾ cup of white rum
1 bottle of Bundaberg Ginger Beer
Sliced wheels of lime, fresh mint, ice to serve
Jalapeño Simple Syrup
¾ cup caster sugar
¾ cup water
1 jalapeño, seeded and sliced
Directions
In a small saucepan, bring the water to a boil with the sugar and jalapeño, stirring to dissolve. Let cool completely, then strain the syrup (discarding the jalapeño).
In a food processor, pulse the pineapple and mint until finely chopped. Add to a glass pitcher or jug, top with the juices, jalapeño syrup, and rum. Stir and refrigerate to chill. To serve, pour over ice in tumblers, and top with ginger beer. Garnish with a sprig of mint and wheel of lime.
