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

island jay's rum runner recipe

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.
Share your thoughts below. How did yours come out? How do you make your own Rum Runner?
