Best 11 Summer Rum Cocktails – Easy And Refreshing
Sharing is caring!
I don’t know about you but I entered this cocktail world with a few classic rum cocktails that made my summer days that much better. Cocktails like the mojito, pina colada, mai tai and so on are the first one that comes to my mind when I think of a classic summer cocktail.
It was quite hard to make a list of only 11 rum summer cocktails but I didn’t want to add more than that since it can be quite overwhelming to choose from a huge list. I did my best to add cocktails that are quite different from each other so you have where to choose from.

Cuba Libre is one of the most popular rum drinks out there and, for sure, the easiest one to make at home. I love how simple but good it is, I had it quite often the last summer, so that's why I put it in the first place here.
All that matters when you make a Cuba Libre is to choose a good rum. It can go with spiced rum, dark rum, and also light rum, but in my experience, a rum that has a stronger taste works better to cut through the Coca-Cola taste.
We all love a good Daiquiri, but a fruity Daiquiri is that much better and what fruit would be the best if not strawberry? I have a few fruity daiquiri recipes on this site but strawberry daiquiri is my favorite without a doubt.
The ubiquity of Pina Colada means that we have all grown up accepting it as part of our culture without necessarily considering its origin or the exact time it was created; such is the influence of rum, pineapple and coconut in our lives.
The Mai Tai is a renowned tiki drink that many people have heard of and likely want to try. Despite its relatively long history, this cocktail has continued to remain popular, with several different recipes existing for it.
An ideal summer refresher, Canchanchara is a traditional Cuban cocktail with a simple combination of ingredients that create a truly unique and delicious flavor. Chanchanara is an uncomplicated yet invigorating refreshment, perfect for cooling off in the warmer months.
Mojito, a long drink or highball based on rum, has become so popular it is sure to attract loyal followers. It is the perfect accompaniment to warmer weather. Mint, lime, sugar, club soda, and rum the best mixture of sweet but still refreshing ingredients to make your summer better.
The Rum Collins is a delicious adaptation of the classic Collins cocktail, using rum as its main ingredient. The drink is fizzy and slightly sweet, making it a perfect treat.
