Drink of the Day | the Rum Runner

May 26, 2015


A delightfully sweet cocktail, this drink is perfect for a hot and humid or even a rainy day. This rum concoction hosts a variety of flavors, all sweet and savory. Although it is similar to a hurricane, and not as popular here in New Orleans, this recipe predates it and has a more tropical taste.

The recipe includes: 

  • 1 oz. light rum
  • 1 oz. dark rum
  • 1 oz. blackberry liquer
  • 1 oz. banana liquer
  • 1 oz. pineapple juice
  • 1 oz. Orange juice
  • Floater of grenadine (I always put my grenadine floaters at the bottom for layering)

For an extra kick, add a floater of 151.. Don’t be afraid to order this at your next trip to the bar, and don’t be afraid to make it for others!

Enjoy and drink responsibly!
