Rum Cocktails

These classic rum cocktails couldn’t be simpler

When we think of rum, sometimes it’s swash-buckling pirates that come to mind. But you don’t have to be a jolly Roger or Regina to get into the rum spirit. And really, who wants to pop the cork with their teeth and drink straight from the bottle anyway? Rum is actually a very sophisticated and versatile liquor. And it mixes beautifully with just about anything you’ve got rolling around your galley.

Dark, white, spiced – we’ll cover them all and show you how to make a variety of rum cocktails with a few simple ingredients. Let’s get you on your journey to becoming a connoisseur and perfect your Aussie Mule. Or Crushed Sailor, if that’s more your thing.
