Bahama Mama

A refreshing breeze from the Caribbean


  • 1 oz dark rum
  • 1 oz coconut rum
  • 1 oz white rum
  • 2 oz fresh orange juice
  • 2 oz fresh pineapple juice
  • a splash of grenadine
  • (optional) 0.5 oz coffee liqueur for extra depth
  • Garnish - orange slice and cherry


    1. In a large glass (hurricane) add grenadine and then ice. Set aside.
    2. In a shaker pour all liquids and a generous amount of ice. Shake very well.
    3. Strain over the ice-filled glass.
    4. Garnish with an orange slice and cherry.
    5. Serve immediately.


    Only stir this lightly before serving, so the red color stays at the bottom but it still has a nice gradient.

    If you're using the coffee liqueur, add it to the shaker when mixing the drink.

    Tips & Tricks

    You can substitute the grenadine with strawberry or raspberry syrup to get a similar looking cocktail, even if the flavor will be a bit different. 

    Another way of serving this is to pour the grenadine over the ice in the glass, and then the drink, to get a sort of marbled effect.
