Jamaican Me Crazy

We posted two recipe variations for the drink Jamaican Smile a while back, but recently were asked for a recipe for a drink called Jamaican Me Crazy. Happy to oblige, we did some research and came up with the following.¬† This one packs a punch with 2 shots of rum and 1 shot liqueur in each serving¬† but delivers a smooth tropical vibe with the banana liqueur and coconut rum…yum…
One of these could surely make-a-me-crazy…

Jamaican Smile

We’ve only had the pleasure of visiting Jamaica once – so far – and certainly enjoyed some fantastic tropical scenery along with some knock your socks off Rum Punches. We hadn’t, however, heard of such rum delights as the Jamaican Smile until Facebook friend Michele Huttenga Shippe asked for help in locating the recipe for the drink she had enjoyed during an apparently successful Rum Therapy session in Jamaica!

As we searched for the recipe, we were surprised at the variety of recipes found on the the web. We found one that looked pretty tasty and set out to make one. About that time, Facebook friend Jehmal David Hartwell posted a Jamaican Smile recipe for us. They were different enough that we thought we should create them both and do a taste test. In the end, they were quite different, but both really good. If you’ve had a Jamaican Smile, let us know which one tastes most like the one you tried – or let us know if you’ve been using a different recipe.
