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
- 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.
