Recipe for rum

Rum is not just for the beach and cruise ships! Take your shakers off and put together your limes because the classic rum drinks are significantly making a comeback.

Pina Colada

The pina colada is believed to have originated from Puerto Rican pirate Roberto Cofresi to boost the morale of his ship. You can increase your spirits at home as you observe National Pina Colada Day on July 10!

This is an easy recipe to prepare a pina colada using pineapple juice, coconut cream coconut, and Rum. Serve with a slice of fresh pineapple or vibrant maraschino cherry, and you’re set to go. It’s among our top summertime rum cocktails.


The classic rum cocktail is a result of American Mining engineer Jennings Cox. Legend says that Cox was making gin-based sours for his guests. After running out of gin, he used Rum to ruin the evening.

Although many bars on the beach serve a daiquiri in a slush, the traditional recipe is only 1 1/2 1 ounces of white Rum, 3/4 ounces of lime, and 1/4 an ounce of simple syrup. Shaken, then strained before serving in glasses chilled. If you’re looking for something fruity, Here’s the recipe for the perfect peach daiquiri in two methods.

Dark ‘n’ Stormy

The drink was created in Bermuda. The Rum drink was a match against the British Royal Navy’s effort to produce ginger ale (a desperate attempt to keep sailors from drinking too many) in addition to Gosling’s Black Seal Rum.

Consider your Dark ‘n’ Stormy as an alcoholic drink with a slight boost in Rum and coca. It’s 2 ounces of Gosling’s Black Seal Rum and the addition of ginger ale. That’s it. It’s always easy! Are you looking to be superficial? Here are some more recipe ideas for two ingredient drinks.


The most significant feature of this drink is its variety. A man in Havana, Cuba, first invented it. Still, there are fresh variations, such as the mojito with blackberries and maple syrup, the mojito with blueberries, the blueberry mojito, and the dirty mojito and ted with raw sugar and gold Rum.

The traditional mojito drink recipe includes lime wedges, mint sprigs, sugar, light Rum, and club soda. Here are some simple cocktail garnish ideas, too.

El Floridita Daiquiri

It was invented by the famous Constantino Ribalaiguavert, who poured 10 million daiquiris. The cocktail is also referred to for its Hemingway Daiquiri. Ernest Hemingway loved daiquiris, so he ordered doubles and earned his drink the nickname “Papa Doble.” (Drink too many Papa Dobles; you may require these hangover remedies the next day.)

Hemingway loved his drinks mixed or frozen, but nowadays, the Hemingway Daiquiri is usually served straight up. Mix 2 ounces of white liquor, 1/4 ounce maraschino liquor, 3/4 ounce of grapefruit juice, 1 ounce of lime juice, and an addition of simple syrup. Shake to mix and pour into glass. Garnish with maraschino cherries.

Planter’s Punch

It is believed that it originated probably in Jamaica Rum beverage recipe appeared in the form of verses in newspapers and magazines that published it. Here’s a brief and sweet version of the recipe from The Kansas City Star in 1903: “One of sour, one of sweet, two of strong, and one of weak.”

The recipe for our Recipe for Planter’s Punch includes 2 12 ounces of dark Rum, 2 ounces of pineapple juice, 1/2 ounces of fresh lime juice, and 1/4 ounces of grenadine. Shake the drink before being served over crushed ice inside a Collins glass. The drink is then topped with Club soda and a mint sprig of maraschino cherry.


The drink is so well-known it’s a hit in New Orleans; it’s now one of the most famous Mardi Gras drinks. Pat O’Brien claims to have invented the drink at his speakeasy, and the secret code to access it is “Storm’s brewin’.” He created the Hurricane due to the need to go through the Rum he ordered to purchase from his liquor distributor before he could purchase more whiskey and scotch.

Despite its origins as a castoff, the drink is delicious. This is how you can create the classic New Orleans Hurricane drink.


It’s not technically a rum-based beverage. However, the caipirinha is made from Rum’s closest cousin, the cachaca. Rum is a molasses-based drink made from which is a byproduct of sugar cane juice. Cachaca is made with freshly harvested sugarcane. Rum has a slightly different flavor, grassy taste, and herbaceous scent. The caipirinha was initially created as a drink to help fight the flu. It is made from honey, garlic, and lemon.

To make a caipirinha, cut half of a lime into wedges, then muddle it with two spoons of sugar. Fill your glass with ice, and add 2 cups of cachaca. Easy!

Mai Tai

At the time that Victor Jules Bergeron (also known as Trader Vic) first served this drink to a group of friends from Tahiti, one of the guests exclaimed, “Mai tai-roa ae!” that translates to “Out of the world! The most delicious!” It was all mai tai ever since. Some say that Trader Vic did not invent the first Mai Tai, to which the entrepreneur has replied: “Anybody who says I didn’t create this drink is a dirty stinker.” There you go!

Don’t let the modern versions of this drink make you believe that they are. This is how to create a genuine Mai Tai. Pick your preferred Rum (here are our suggestions for the most popular Rum at the moment) and garnish with a sprig or two of mint and freshly cut lime to represent the palm tree and island.

Rum Punch

Rum punch has been around for a long time, since the 17th century, to cocktail glasses of today. Since Rum was the only readily available spirit for British sailors in the latter half of the 1600s, mainly in areas like the Caribbean and the Caribbean, it was their preferred spirit of choice. It was also more appealing when sugar, citrus, spices, and water were added to create a punch.

Most rum punch recipes require some variation of these ingredients, with citrus starring, except for Barbados, where a rum punch is a simple syrup and Angostura bitters. Two delicious methods to make the rum punch.

It’s also easy to mix into the form of a mixed cocktail for when you’re entertaining guests.

Long Island Iced Tea

It’s impossible to list rum-based drinks without including this drink. The glass was created by a man named “Old Man Bishop.” During Prohibition, the Long Island Iced Tea will make you feel like a seasoned older man.

This is how you can make the well-knownly boozy Long Island Iced Tea. You’ll require 1 ounce of vodka, vodka light, gin, tequila, and gin to get started.
