Keep it Breezy with a Bahama Mama Cocktail
We’ve recently updated this post with more information and even a virgin option. But this rummy Bahama Mama concoction was originally shared with us by my friend Janelle of Barn2Door.
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? Don’t sweat. These island drinks are very forgiving.
