Rum Runner Deluxe

Rum Runner Deluxe with light rum, dark rum, blackberry liqueur, banana liqueur, orange juice, pineapple juice, and grenadine

We’ve added the Rum Runner Deluxe in response to a user who wrote in to ask why our Rum Runner recipe didn’t have any juice in it besides lime. That question sent us down a rabbit hole of tiki cocktail history, and along the way we learned that the original recipe – a fairly dry, spirit-forward drink – had somehow merged over the years with frutier recipes like the Zombie and various rum punches.

These days, it is rare to see the original recipe on a cocktail menu – probably since its overproof rum makes it pretty darn strong for the average customer looking for a fruity rum drink!

We’ve compiled and tested a zillion “modern” Rum Runner recipes, and this easy ratio came out on top. It doesn’t share much with the original besides its banana and blackberry flavors, but it’s so tasty and easy to drink that it deserves a place in the tiki canon. Since it’s kind of a mash-up recipe, it’s pretty flexible – try it with different rum combinations, sub in raspberry liqueur for blackberry, or try it with tangerine or kumquat juice!

Gut mit Luft nach oben

Ich war auf der Suche nach einer Cocktail Datenbank mit der ich mir zuverlässig die Drinks anzeigen lassen kann, für die ich auch die Zutaten im Hause habe. Mit Cocktail Flow klappt das leider nicht verlässlich. Dieses Programm macht das vorbildlich und vor allem listet es die Cocktails auch danach auf, wo mir noch eine, zwei usw. Zutaten fehlt. So kann ich auch immer schauen was ich mir ggf. noch kaufen sollte. Die Auswahl an Getränken ist gut, jedoch mit wenig Sirup-haltigen. Hier würd ich mir mehr Rezepte wünschen wo man die div. Fruchtsirupe einsetzen kann. Auch gibt es leider keine Möglichkeit Cocktails als Favoriten zu kennzeichnen oder das Rezept zu exportieren. Da das Programm nur in Englisch ist muss man in der Zutatenliste manchmal googlen was damit gemeint ist. Mit ein paar Rezepten mehr, Favoritenfunktion und Lokalisierung gibt es fünf Sterne.
Translation: I was looking for a cocktail database with which I can reliably display the drinks for which I also have the ingredients in the house. Unfortunately, this does not work reliably with cocktail flow. This program does the exemplary and above all it lists the cocktails also after, where I still missing one, two etc. ingredients. So I can always look what I should possibly buy. The selection of drinks is good, but with little syrup-containing. Here I would want more recipes where you can use the div. Fruit syrups. Unfortunately, there is no way to mark cocktails as favorites or to export the recipe. Since the program is only in English you have to googling in the list of ingredients sometimes what is meant by that. With a few more recipes, favorites and localization, there are five stars.
