Island Jay's Rum Runner Recipe With Sailor Jerry (Video)

Ahh the Rum Runner. Perhaps the best known cocktail that best brings you right to a warm beach in the Florida Keys.

Imagine sitting under a hut as a cabana boy brings you your next Rum Runner along with conch fritters and coconut breaded chicken. Thirsty yet?


Here is Island Jay's own Rum Runner Recipe

  • 2oz Sailor Jerry Spiced Rum
  • 1oz Banana Liqueur
  • 1oz Apricot Liqueur
Other Stuff
  • 4oz Orange Juice
  • 1 Cup Ice
  • Splash of Grenadine
You can combine all of these items into a shaker and mix it up OR blend it for a Frozen Island Jay Rum Runner. Either way, this cocktail is a good balance of sweet and strong...and it IS STRONG. We made a few "doubles" when testing this and can tell you with absolute certainty we needed to write this recipe down before the night was over.

    I haven’t made it yet, but I would probably make my Rum Runner in a blender and then maybe only do 1 oz. of rum instead of two if it is indeed strong!

    I received my order today (2 stickers, 2 car coasters and zip up hoodie). The hoodie is so comfy and fits very well! I have been ordering from you for many years and I have no complaints!

    Received!!!! We LOVE the t-shirts… The cotton is Ridiculously FANTASTIC… I bought one of those t-shirts of May Quarantine Birthday wear it on my birthday, washed it and lost all the lettering of the shirt… And you can see thru the “cotton” of the shirt. #IslandJayurdbest
