Bahama Mama

Bahama Mama 3

The very first time we ever had this was when we visited the Bahamas. Enjoying the beautiful sun filled soft sandy beaches, the aquamarine ocean, and the gentle greetings of warm friendly natives we had to try out this delicious tropical drink which bears the name of the Island.

While I sipped mine slowly, allured by the mesmerizing sunsets, the Palm trees and the uncivilized pace known as “Island Time”, my hubby was on his way for his second one. On this visit to the Tiki bar on the beach he managed to get the recipe from the friendly bar-tender.

We still hear the jazz band playing on the beach (yeah in our dreams!!) while we entertain our guests (and often ourselves too!) with this tropical cocktail recreating that refreshingly native taste of the Bahamas.


  1. ¾ ounce Coconut Rum (Malibu)
  2. ¾ ounce Banana Liqueur (Hiram Walker)
  3. 1 ounce Spiced Rum (Captain Morgan)
  4. 1.5 ounce Orange Juice
  5. 2.5 ounce Pineapple Juice
  6. 2-4 dashes (1-2 tablespoon) Grenadine
  7. ¼ cup crushed ice


Orange/Pineapple wedge

1 Maraschino Cherry (optional)


Combine all the ingredients and mix them in a cocktail shaker. Serve in a cocktail glass. Garnish with Orange/Pineapple wedge.


Serves 1

  • This reminds me of when I first discovered Planters Punch and Singapore Slings. So seductive. Wish I could be lolling about sipping one this afternoon. There’s something about a tropical cocktail….

    Ok….I am sitting here after hanging in the sun all day, playing with boats and looking at my first STUMBLE! A friend of mine turned me on to the website. How ironic that I was sipping rum drinks that had most of the ingredients listed. Well it was I think maybe my third cocktail!! Anyhow, fantastic memories of sailing the island in a Navy ship and my personal boat over the years will dance in my rum infused noggin tonight as the motion of my boat takes me away to Bimini and points east!!!! It is soooooo much fun being free of lifes curve balls!

    A friend of mine brought this to a pool party at my house today….this was my “drink of choice” on my honeymoon 18 years ago in Cozumel!!! I’ve tried to recreate the Bahama Mama I had there & have tried several different recipes & mixes…but none tasted quite the same. So glad to have this recipe–it’s delish!!!
