Bahama Mama Cocktail: The Best Things are Dairy Free


While relaxing in the lazy days of summer, enjoy this rummy Bahama Mama concoction from my friend Janelle of Barn2Door. It’s a naturally dairy free reward!

Easy Bahama Mama Cocktail RecipeFor 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? Don’t sweat. These island drinks are very forgiving.
