Bahama Mama

We knew we’d like the taste of this tropical concoction when we heard it contained 3 different rums – oh, AND Kahlúa! Recipes for a Bahama Mama can be quite different – some contain banana liqueur instead of Kahlúa and some contain orange juice instead of lemon juice. This is one of our favorite recipes for a Bahama Mama – not too sweet, but a great tropical taste!

Bahama Mama
(makes 1)

1/2 ounce dark rum
1/2 ounce light rum
1/2 ounce 151-proof rum
1/2 ounce Kahlúa
1 ounce fresh lemon juice
3 ounces unsweetened pineapple juice
Wedge of pineapple or slice of orange and a maraschino cherry

Shake the rums, Kahlúa, lemon juice, and pineapple juice with ice then strain over crushed ice into a chilled glass. Garnish with a pineapple wedge or orange slice and a maraschino cherry.

  1. The Bahama Mama is a great tropical cocktail that, in true tiki fashion , features two potent rums , dark and 151 proof. The coffee and coconut liqueurs along with pineapple juice add that extra tropical touch. A perfect drink for summer that is very popular ( one you should know ) and a certain crowd pleaser. If you travel to the islands you’ll often find this served in a coconut, which is a nice touch.
