As much as I love using fresh ingredients, premium alcohol, and homemade mixers, in this case, there simply wasn't time. Thus, I took some help from the store.

2 cups dark rum
1 cup light rum
1 cup triple sec
3 1/2 cups no-pulp orange juice
3 1/2 cups pineapple juice
2 cups sweet n' sour mix
1/2 cup grenadine
Combine all ingredients in a large pitcher or cooler. Stir to mix. Serve over ice.
Makes about 24 drinks (I made four batches for the rehearsal dinner).
