Affordable rum drink recipes

Tb-btl-w-mojito-copy Last weekend, I went to the Rum Renaissance Festival down here on Miami Beach. I used to drink rum a little more, but I switched to wine once I found some affordable wines for under $10. However, I picked up some recipes at the festival for mixed rum drinks, and I think I can now make a good bottle of rum last longer!  The next time I have friends over, I'll make mixed drinks.  Quite honestly, I don't think I'll be bringing a bottle of rum to your party, though.I have to reserve it for my VIP friends! LOL

Here are some *more affordable* rum drink recipes:

Tommy Classic Daiquiri

2 parts Tommy Bahama White Sand Rum

1 part freshly squeezed lime juice

½ part simple syrup

Shake ingredients with crushed ice in a cocktail shaker. Serve straight up in a chilled cocktail glass. Garnish with a lime wheel.

Lime Twist

Pour Tommy Bahama White Sand Rum into a shaker with ice.  Shake sharply.  Strain into a martini glass.  Garnish with a twist of lime.


Golden Sun Cuba Libre

1 ¾ parts Tommy Bahama Golden Sun Rum

The juice of 1 lime


Pour the lime juice and Tommy Bahama Golden Sun Rum into a highball glass filled with ice.  Fill glass with cola.  Garnish with a wedge of lime.


Tommy Bahama Paradise Punch

2 parts Tommy Bahama Golden Sun Rum

1 part pineapple juice

Splash or orange juice

Mix ingredients in a shaker with ice.  Pour into a rocks glass.  Garnish with an orange wedge.

What's your favorite mixed drink? Do you like rum? What country makes the best rum? Barbados? Virgin Islands? Puerto Rico?
