It’s not the classiest drink, sure, but we’ve enjoyed far too many to turn up our noses at it! Fresh-squeezed juice and proper grenadine (made from pomegranates, not Red #5) go a lot way towards making the Bahama Mama more pleasant than the syrupy slushes of yesteryear.
- ½ part Dark rum or Spiced rum or Aged rum
- ½ part Overproof light rum
- ½ part Coconut rum
- ¼ part Coffee liqueur
- 1 part Lemon juice
- 3 parts Pineapple juice
- 1 part Orange juice
- ½ part Grenadine
Shake with ice and strain into an ice-filled glass. Garnish to your heart’s content – little umbrella, pineapple slice, the works!
