If you’re looking for Rum cocktails ideas, here are some of our favorite, classic rum cocktails:


The mojito is one of the most refreshing cocktails you’ll have the pleasure of drinking. The Mojito dates back to 16th-century Cuba, and one sip proves why it has endured so long. The mix of white rum, lime, fresh mint, simple syrup and club soda is so delicious that you won’t mind the little extra work it takes to get all the ingredients muddled just right.

Old Fashioned

How about an Old Fashioned with rum? Don’t knock it until you’ve tried it. The blend of dark rum, demerara syrup, allspice dram, orange bitters, and Angostura bitters may suit your mood even better than a classic Bourbon Old Fashioned. Anyhow, it’s the perfect way to mix up your spirit-forward drinks.


There are several rum drinks everyone should learn how to make, but the daiquiri is the first. That doesn’t mean finding the quickest way to open the ready-to-drink daiquiri bottle, either. This is a fresh daiquiri mixed up with just three ingredients: rum, lime juice, and simple syrup. It’s incredibly simple, and once you learn how to make the basic daiquiri, the flavor possibilities are endless.

Planter’s Punch

Rum and punch go hand-in-hand, and it doesn’t always fill a punch bowl. In most cases, a rum punch is a tall mixed drink with a lot of fruit juices, such as the classic planter’s punch. Which fruits go into it is a matter of personal taste. Some drinkers prefer pineapple, others like passion fruit, while others like to pour a medley of fruits. Go for a rich dark rum to make sure the spirit shines.

Pina Colada

This creamy classic—a blend of light rum, cream of coconut and pineapple and lime juices—dates back more than half a century to its invention in San Juan, Puerto Rico. Our version eschews the blender in flavor of a good shake with pebble ice. While you can cheat and buy a pre-made Pina colada, it is so much more delicious when made fresh. Every sip takes you on a mental journey to the islands, so relax and enjoy!


The hurricane is both tasty and potent because it has an abundance of rum. It is also a perfect introduction to tropical cocktails, which are known for complex flavors. The recipe includes light and dark rums, passion fruit, orange, and lime juices, simple syrup, and grenadine. Not only is this an iconic rum cocktail, but it’s also a signature drink of New Orleans, created at the famous Pat O’Brien’s bar in the 1940s. It remains the drink to order anytime you visit.

Dark & Stormy

After a long day at work, happy hour is the time for a tall, refreshing drink that’s super easy to pour. This two-ingredient cocktail couldn’t be simpler to make or more delightful to drink. Just add ice and dark rum (Gosling’s Black Seal, to make it properly) to a highball glass and top with ginger beer, then garnish with a lime wedge.

Rum Runner

A shining star in tiki bars since the 1950s, the rum runner is always a fun drink to mix up. Like many of its tropical counterparts, there are many ways to make it, though you’re always assured of finding a good dose of rum and lots of fruity flavors. Since no one can decide on the original recipe, you’ll have to try them all to discover which you like best.

Watermelon Mojito

If you love a standard Mojito, with its blend of rum, lime juice, mint and soda water, you’ll adore this fruity twist on the Cuban cooler that adds watermelon to the mix. It couldn’t be more refreshing drink for summer days.

Rum and Coke

Rum and Coke, it is almost too simple to deserve a recipe. However, even the easiest drinks can become a disaster. The primary issue with this perennial favorite is that people like to overpour the rum, which burns the flavor. To maintain balance, stick with a ratio of 1:2 or 1:3, and you’ll never be disappointed.

Mai Tai

Perhaps the best-known Tiki drink, this classic is said to have been created by Trader Vic himself. It’s the perfect rum cocktail for showing off your bartending skills as well as your signature blend of rums, plus curaçao, lime juice and orgeat. Garnish with a lime wheel and mint sprig for a proper flourish.

Bacardi Cocktail

In the history of rum, Bacardi played a significant role. Many of the first bartending guides specifically called for the brand or used the name when referring to rum in general. The Bacardi cocktail recipe helped make it a household name and, if you want to stay on the right side of the law, you need to pour Bacardi. It’s a tasty drink, made with light rum, either lemon or lime juice, and grenadine.
