The quintessential Cuban cocktail and perhaps one of the best known internationally. Which is why it’s easy to find a good mojito virtually throughout the Caribbean, which is also home to the best rums (a mojito wouldn’t be a mojito without rum). Add crushed mint leaves, sugar cane, lots of lemon, and a splash of mineral water. Ah! And ice, you can’t have too much ice!
This Jamaican cocktail has an international following and has even been recognized as the official cocktail of the International Bartenders Association. Making it requires some skill, but the ingredients are quite simple: dark Jamaican rum mixed with lemon juice, grenadine and concentrated Angostura bitters.
Okay. It’s true, the mojito is pretty typical, but there’s no other cocktail that fits in better in that imaginary scene with the hammock on the beach than the piña colada. Legend has it that this famous drink was created by accident…a happy coincidence that millions of tourists are grateful for today. The cocktail contains pineapple juice, coconut milk, dark rum and a lot of crushed ice for a refreshing and irresistible drink. Summer in a glass!
This cocktail is a bit of a mish-mash of other drinks, traditionally served in a coconut shell. There are generally two types of Bahama Mama; one with dark rum and the other with the potent “151 proof” rum. The rum is mixed with pineapple juice, orange juice and a touch of grenadine to give the drink its famous reddish color.
Tired of rum? This is the most famous drink in Curacao: it’s no mystery why they share a name. The liquor is made by soaking the bitter bark of “larahas” –a citrus fruit similar to orange– in alcohol. It is served with ice and a splash of orange juice.
A refreshing yet nutritious cocktail. Beat the heat with this Jamaican drink made with dark rum, Tía María liqueur, cream liqueur and banana ice cream.
