RUM RUNNER COCKTAIL

RUM RUNNER COCKTAIL

This tropical cocktail will make you think of warm breezes on a gorgeous beach, with your toes buried in the sand.

This drink is a sweet concoction full of fruit juices and rum.  It goes down smooth and packs a punch, so be careful.

There are as many variations on this drink as there are bars, but all Rum Runners include rum, orange and/or pineapple juice, and some kind of liqueur – or two.

A tropical cocktail with 2 different rums, banana liqueur and blackberry liqueur, and orange and pineapple juices. Garnished with a fresh blackberry and pineapple wedge.

WHERE DID THE RUM RUNNER ORIGINATE?

Rumour has it that this drink was developed in the 1950s at a Tiki bar in Islamorada in the Florida Keys by a bartender who had just a bit of several different rums and liqueurs.  Rather than waste so many boozy remnants, he mixed them all together and the rest is history.

VARIATIONS ON THIS TROPICAL COCKTAIL

  • Swap out the dark rum for a spiced rum like Sailor Jerry or Captain Morgan.
  • Use a coconut rum, like Malibu, for even more tropical flair.
  • Make it a frozen drink.  Instead of shaking and pouring over ice, combine all the ingredients into a blender and blend until frothy.  Pour it into a hurricane glass, garnish, and enjoy.
