Bahama Mamas (Vegan, Soy-Free)


Who says dairy-free is just for kids?  While relaxing in the lazy days of summer, enjoy this rummy concoction from Janelle at Talk of Tomatoes.



  • 1 1/2 ounce coconut rum
  • 1 ounce triple sec
  • 4 oz orange juice
  • 4 oz pineapple juice
  • 1/2 ounce grenadine

For the record: I never measured. Tropical mentality, I presume. And I made one round in just a glass, and another time I poured a whole pitcher (one for you, four for me). The truth is I do mental fractions while pouring (or my boys might say I measure in “gluggs”; when I ask them to pour olive oil in a skillet I tell them: one glugg or two gluggs. Same goes for alcohol: one glugg or more. I think one glugg is a very rough 1 ounce). So when I pour a glass it is two small gluggs coconut rum, one large glugg triple sec, a few gluggs of orange juice and pineapple juice–I usually err on the side of more orange juice—and a half glugg, splash-like amount of grenadine. Sounds complicated? The island drinks are very forgiving. Start pouring, mix, adjust. It’s all good.
