Nothing says summertime like kickin’ it with a rum cocktail that will bring flavor and fun. You could go with the typical rum and coke or you could be bold with one of these island-inspired rum cocktails.
It’s only proper that some of the best and most well-known rum cocktails come from the islands that produce the rum as well. Here are some of our favorite rum cocktails featuring Admiral Nelson Premium Spiced Rum.
First off, the legendary rum punch. You can pretty much combine any rums with any juices that go well together and you have it! Here’s a take a typical island recipe:
- 1.5 oz Admiral Nelson’s Black Patch: Premium Black Spiced Rum
- 1.5 oz Admiral Nelson’s Premium Spiced Rum
- 3 oz. Pineapple Juice
- 3 oz. Orange Juice
- 2 oz. Guava Juice (A common tropical fruit!)
- A Little Grenadine
- Pineapple or Orange slice for garnish
Mix all ingredients together in a bowl, pitcher or punch bowl. Chill and serve on ice and garnish with an orange or pineapple slice. Maybe add an umbrella if you’re feeling extra fancy!
If you’ve ever traveled to the Caribbean then odds are you’ve heard of a painkiller. And no, I’m not talking about pills. I’m talking a delicious explosion of coconut, OJ & pineapple. If you can’t physically be at the Soggy Dollar in the British Virgin Islands where the drink became famous, you can make it pretty easily from home. It’s a pretty simple drink to make and you’ll look like an islander when you show it off at your next get together with friends! Here’s what you need:
- Admiral Nelson’s Black Patch: Premium Black Spiced Rum
- 4 oz. Pineapple Juice
- 1 oz. Orange Juice
- 1 oz. Cream of Coconut
Mix all ingredients, except for the nutmeg, together in a shaker. Pour over ice and top with nutmeg. Garnish with an orange slice and a cherry if you please!
So kick your feet up this summertime, relax & enjoy the many flavorful rum cocktails you can create with Admiral Nelson Rum. And as Alan Jackson says, “it’s five o’clock somewhere.” Cheers!
