You could make up a big batch of the juices in the morning, ice it down, and then mix with whatever portion of rum gets you the alcohol level needed. The missing rum may kick the balance off a bit, but that's probably going to happen with any tiki drink that gets low in the alcohol range.
You can sub mango or papaya nectar for the pineapple juice if you'd like. Just be sure to taste and adjust the citrus for balance.

Jenise, I don't know if you recall Peggy Bucholz, her website is Fine Dinings. She is a wonderful cook and knows how to entertain. She moved to Oro Valley from Clackamus and went into a retirement area. She did the same thing you did. Could not believe the crappy potlucks and took on the job of doing them better. She found out the people really did not care one way or the other.....after all, many are there for the social part of it.

I have used this recipe and it makes a very good - and incredibly potent, sneaky - drink. You might note that it makes 124 oz of punch, of which 96 oz are spirits.
2 cups dark rum
2 cups curacao
8 cups light rum
6 oz can of frozen pineapple concentrate
6 oz can of frozen orange concentrate
6 oz can of frozen limeade concentrate
10 oz can of frozen lemonade concentrate
Mix all ingredients. Fill a tall glass 3/4 full of ice, pour punch to nearly fill the glass, and top with a slice of fruit (pineapple chunk, orange slice, strawberry, maraschino).
Makes 20 servings.
