Recipe: Bahama Mama (Drink)

Ready for seaside sipping!

Makes just over a gallon

Cooking a meal for every country in the world makes this mama thirsty! The Bahamas have the perfect solution – a traditional, tropical Bahama Mama.

Serve Bahama Mamas chilled, under the hot summer sun. Play around and adjust this recipe to your preferences.

NOTE: Some prefer to add unflavored rum for all or part of the rum flavor. You decide for you, below is what I like :)


1 quart chilled orange juice
1 quart chilled pineapple juice
1/4 cup grenadine
2 cups chilled coconut rum, or to taste


1. In a large pitcher, combine all ingredients. Stir well. Return to refrigerator until needed.

2. Serve over crushed ice. Garnish with orange slices if desired (I completely forgot to do this, but I know you’ll forgive me as soon as you taste this drink :) )
