Summer’s (almost) here, the temperatures are rising, and the best place to be is on the beach with a cold, refreshing drink in hand. No beach nearby? No problem! You can beat the heat anywhere this summer and enjoy a taste of The Bahamas with a delicious Bahama Breeze cocktail.
The starring ingredient in the Bahama Breeze is rum, which has been linked to The Bahamas for centuries, since the days of pirates and, more recently, prohibition. You’ll also enjoy tropical flavors like coconut and banana, as well as the juice of your choice. Want to make your Bahama Breeze even more authentic? Pick up a bottle of John Watling’s rum during your Nassau Paradise Island vacation and use it to mix up delicious cocktails at home.
Ready to unwind? Here’s how to mix up the Bahama Breeze cocktail.
- 1 oz dark rum
- ½ oz apricot brandy
- ½ oz banana liqueur
- ½ oz coconut rum
- ¼ oz grenadine syrup
- 2 oz of your choice of juice (try orange, pineapple, or a blend of the two)
- ½ oz lemon juice
- ¼ oz honey
Combine all ingredients in a blender with 3 ice cubes. Pour into a tall glass, then garnish with an orange slice or pineapple wedge.
