  1. I’m a fan of Rum & Coca-Cola made with Sailor Jerry rum. I swear, the rum actually makes the Coke taste better.

  2. My favorite dark rum drink is the Dark and Stormy. Pour 2oz dark rum over ice, add 8oz ginger beer, juice of 1/4th of a lime and stir. Delicious!!

  3. This one’s my recipe:

    Drunken Hummingbird

    1 oz Dark Rum
    1 oz Rum Cream (can use Baileys for similar drink if unavailable)
    1 oz Kahlua
    .5 ounce Strawberry Syrup/flavoring
    Half of a Banana
    1 oz cream
    1 cup crushed ice

    Blend and Enjoy!

    I’ve also made it where the 1 oz cream and 1 cup crushed ice is subbed with ice cream. Also delicious, but heavier.

  4. A dark n stormy – so yummy

    2 oz dark rum 3 oz ginger beer and a lime wedge for garnish if desired

    1. Build the ingredients in a highball glass filled with ice cubes. 2. Garnish with the lime wedge.

    For a tropical mix, try mango ginger beer! It’s paradise in a cup!

  5. Simple: a shot of Flor de Caña 19 años. Stock up at the grocery next time you’re in Nicaragua. 🙂

  6. Best Dark Rum:
    Bermuda Triangle
    2 oz Orange Juice
    2 oz Cranberry Juice
    1 1/2 oz Dark Rum
    Add ingredients over ice, stir gently and garnish with a fresh orange slice.

    Best 151 rum:
    Miami Vice
    5 oz rum
    1 packagefrozen pina colada mix
    1 packagefrozen daiquiri mix

  7. I like to make a drink called “Another”.

    Ingredients are…

    -Dark Rum
    -Cranberry Juice
    -Pineapple Juice

    The trick is to pour amaretto/dark rum first. Followed by Pineapple. Lastly cranberry. Just throw a splash of cranberry on the top and it becomes a multi-layered drink with the red and yellow mixing quite well. Looks great, tastes great. You will want “Another”

  8. El Dorado 15 over ice. No matter how many you consume, you can’t screw up the recipe.

  9. Dark and Stormy.

    1/4 lime, cut into two thick slices
    2 ounces Gosling’s Black Seal Bermuda black rum
    4 ounces Barritt’s Ginger Beer

    Fill a highball glass with ice. Squeeze one lime over the ice. Add the rum. Add the ginger beer. Place a slice of lime on the rim of the glass.


  10. Planter’s Punch – so good make it by the pitcher:

    1 fifth dark rum
    1 6-ounce can frozen orange juice concentrate
    1 6-ounce can frozen pink lemonade concentrate
    3 tablespoons lemon juice
    3 tablespoons grenadine
    4 cups water

    In a large container, combine all of the ingredients and stir to dissolve the concentrates. Refrigerate until ready to serve. Serve over ice in tall glasses. Garnish with an orange wedge

  11. warning, this $50 gift card you must use an American Express Charge card…..and it’s valid for dinner only.. and can not be used on the daily specials…

  12. and you must buy 2 entrees.. if you buy two burgers at $20 each, with 2 sodas, it will cover the $50.. that was my trick

  13. 3/4 oz dark rum
    1/2 oz coffee liqueur
    3/4 oz lime juice
    1 dash bitters
    Favorite drink while I was in Jamaica, yum!

  14. My favorite dark rum drink is a modified BBC-
    Coconut Rum
    Dark rum

    Blend over ice. Delicious!

  15. 1.5 ounces of Gosling’s dark rum, two lime wedges, fill to the top with Diet coke (has to be Diet, the faintly medicinal taste of aspartame actually helps this drink) and finish with a Grand Marnier float.

  16. My version of the Mauna Kea Mai Tai
    Combine in a shaker (this makes 2 drinks):
    3 oz light rum
    1 oz orange curacao or grand marnier
    2 oz pineapple juice
    2 oz guava juice (mexican section at grocery store)
    2 oz lime juice
    1 oz orgeat syrup (mix section of liquor store)
    1 oz simple syrup
    Mix in shaker and pour over ice then top each drink with
    1 1/2 oz dark rum as a floater on top
    Garnish with mint leaves, pineapple wedge, lime wedge

  17. Aruba aribe

    1/2 oz. rum
    1/2 oz vodka
    1/8 oz. Coecoei
    1/8 oz. Creme de Banana
    1/2 cup orange juice
    1/2 cup cranberry juice
    1/2 cup pineapple juice

  18. south Maui mai tai
    Hana Bay Black Rum (very inexpensive at the local ABC stores) 1/3
    orange juice 1/3
    pineapple juice 1/3
    adjust ratio to taste, garnish with assorted fruit salad and little umbrella if it makes you feel better.

    when I’m home I stick with Appleton Estates 12 year and coke…Ya Mon….Jamaica knows Rum

    P.S. I don’t need the dinner, just thought I’d share

  19. Oh and Jamaica has a rum drink called a “dirty banana”
    They use bananas that have started to turn brown, I don’t know the exact recipe but they are very tasty.
    Maybe someone here knows it?

  20. I’m a fan of my own creation:
    In a tall glass with ice add 1 shot of Myers’s and then fill with Cactus Cooler soda. Maybe not as good and fancy as others out there but very simple and it tastes good.

  21. Cruciatus recipe
    1/2 oz Aftershock® Hot & Cool cinnamon schnapps
    1/2 oz Jagermeister® herbal liqueur
    1/2 oz dark rum
    1/2 oz Rumple Minze® peppermint liqueur

    Mix all ingredients. Serve in a shot glass.

  22. Dark and Stormy – one part Gosling’s Black Seal Rum with 4 parts ginger beer (I prefer Vernor’s). Poor rum over ice, add ginger beer, stir, and enjoy!

  23. Rum and Vanilla Coke Zero. It’s like liquid crack.

    A Dark and Stormy is almost as good,if it has a twist of lime.

  24. The best dark rum drink I know of is a Dark and Stormy… and the best Dark and Stormy I know of is from The Violet Hour in Chicago!! Here’s Toby’s recipe (one of the owners) and a link to him making this famous drink!


    1.5 oz Matusalem Rum
    .75 oz Fresh Lime Juice
    .75 oz Ginger Syrup

    Top: Soda Water
    Float: .5 oz Cruzan Black Strap Rum

    Glass: Collins
    Ice: Shard
    Garnish: Candied Ginger

    Shake. Strain. Top with soda water. Stir briefly. Float Cruzan Black Strap rum.

  25. I found a drink called FUCK FACE (and I can see why its called that!) (I’d like one now!)

    Fuck Face (A popular beverage of Australian origin).

    1/3 oz Wild Turkey® bourbon whiskey
    1/3 oz Jack Daniel’s® Tennessee whiskey
    1/3 oz Bundaberg® dark rum

    Pour ingredients in equal parts into a shot glass, stir, and serve.

  26. My favorite is definitely any dark rum (2 parts) with coca cola lime (1part). But of course it should be a double!
