Bahama Mama

Day 98

Bahama Mama
5 shots out of 5

I have had this cocktail on one of my boards on Pinterest for a while now.  

All I was missing was my Captain Morgans Spiced Rum.  Made a grocery shopping run today and picked it up so that I could make a Bahama Mama, and boy am I glad I did!!

I gave tonight's cocktail 5 shots out of 5.  

I found this cocktail on Pinterest where it was linked to eCurry blog.  Thank you for sharing the scrumptious Bahama Mama with us all!  

This cocktail is all kinds of amazing.  

I can smell the Banana Liqueur when I take a sip, which as we know, makes me happy.  

The 2 rums together with the juices......mmmmmm, what a great blend!  Even my husband likes it!  

I gave him the glass after I took a sip, went to put away my bottles then came back to drink it and write my was almost half gone!  

If it wasn't so late, I would DEFINITELY make another one when this one is gone.  This cocktail is a must try!

Here is the recipe for a Bahama Mama:

  • 3/4 ounce banana liqueur
  • 1 ounce spiced rum
  • 1 1/2 ounces orange juice
  • 2 1/2 ounces pineapple juice
  • 1 tablespoon grenadine
In a shaker add ice and all of the ingredients.  Shake it up real good to mix everything up well.  In a hurricane glass, fill 1/2 way with crushed ice and then strain in your cocktail.

Since we had to watch the American Idol finale (not commenting on who won), tonight's cocktail was made later.  Since tonight's cocktail was made later............I only get

  1. This one is very good! I substituted the bannana with orange liqure cause I couldn't find it in the store ( I looked like a fool going back & fowarth in the store,lol) I think I put to much granedine in mine. But still good none the less!

    1. Oh I'm glad you liked this one, because I really did too! OMG, I totally understand what you mean about trying to find one items and going back and forth in the isle. I did that MANY times when I first started this blog (and still now when I'm looking for something new)! I felt like a total looser at the store! Haha!

  2. This cocktail looks just super. Thanks for linking it in to Food on Friday. Have a great week.

  3. Made this as directed . Boy was it great. You’d never know it contained alcohol . Definitely goes into my mixology loose leaf book.

    1. Oh I'm so glad you enjoyed it! Yes that is a good and bad thing about this cocktail! Haha, cheers!

  4. Could I sub Malibu for white rum?

    1. Hello! Yes you can sub Malibu for white rum, you will just lose the coconut flavoring and sweetness that Malibu gives you.
