Have you ever wondered how to make a Bahama Mama Cocktail at home?
The tropical flavors of pineapple and orange combined with the flavors of a Spiced, Coconut, and traditional Rums. Make for an amazing tropical drink that can be made at home.
Bahama Mama Recipe
Sometimes when hubby and I go out for dinner I like to have a drink with dinner. I think the first time I ever had a Bahama Mama drink was at Red Lobster, boy did I fall in love with this.
This has become my go-to drink if it’s on the drink menu.
This past summer I asked hubby to help me recreate my favorite drink. After searching his bartenders Bible and a little searching on the internet we came up with the perfect combination that I liked.
It is my absolute pleasure to share this delicious drink recipe with you all.
The sweetness of the pineapple and orange juice paired with the spices from Captain Morgan, the sweet coconut flavor from Malibu and the traditional rum flavor from Bacardi. Make for a tropical oasis in a cocktail glass.
I can almost envision myself sitting on a deck with one of these in my hand. The warm sunlight gleaming on my face, while listening to the waves of the ocean crashing to the shore.
The ingredients that you will need to make a Bahama Mama at home are.
- Orange Juice
- Pineapple Juice
- Malibu Rum
- Bacardi Rum
- Spiced Rum (we used Captian Morgan)
- crushed ice
In a 12 ounce glass, we added 3/4 cup of crushed ice. If you don’t like that much ice you can cut back some. I find that I prefer this drink to be on the cooler side.
Next, we added 4 ounces of orange juice. I only buy pulp-free orange juice and think it’s best for this cocktail.
Along with the orange juice, we added 2 ounces of pineapple juice. I was able to find the small serving size cans that are 6 ounces each, much easier than a big can of it.
Now it’s time for the booze. We added 1 ounce each of Malibu Rum, Captain Morgan, and Bacardi Rum to the juices. Stir this all together.
Once those ingredients are mixed together we added 1/2 tablespoon of Grenadine. This just adds a little more sweetness to the drink along with a splash of red color.
This recipe only makes 1 drink, you may want to double the recipe to enjoy with a friend.
Another of my favorites drinks to have is a Frozen Mudslide. It’s like a dessert and drinks all in one glass. If you love chocolate and the flavor of coffee than this is a must-try a cocktail.
Now sit back and enjoy your tropical cocktail ~ Jenny
