These rum mixed drinks are the perfect blends of citrus, coconut, and touches of cherry.  Their smooth, sweet, and refreshing any time of year.  

One of the best things about living in Florida is the Winter weather.  It’s mild, calm, and a great time to get out and enjoy the outdoors.  

The humidity is low and the temperature isn’t too hot. Honestly, Winter is my favorite time of year here.

So, we wanted to share our favorite rum mixed drinks with you this Winter. We hope you enjoy this easy mixed drink recipe.

How to Make a Great Rum Mixed Drink:

First, in a large shaker cup, add enough ice to fill half the cup.

Next, add the pineapple juice, orange juice, rum, and a teaspoon of Maraschino cherry juice.

Orange juice, pineapple juice, cherries, and rum used for rum mixed drinks.

Then, cover the shaker cup and give it a good shake for about 10 to 15 seconds.

Now, take a 6-8 ounce cocktail glass and put a cherry in the bottom of it.

Last, pour the drink into the cocktail glass. Serve cold and enjoy!

Tips for Rum Mixed Drinks:

  • For a pineapple free version, simply increase the orange juice to 4-ounces and omit the pineapple juice.
  • If you don’t have a shaker cup, simply cover a regular glass with a lid.
  • Don’t put extra ice in the cocktail glass because as it melts, it will water down your drink.

Next weekend... These sunset drinks are on my agenda! I live around Cleveland now, and our winters are long and cold usually. But, once upon a time, I was a young tanned thing , still on the beach during the dreamy West Palm winters. Maybe a few of will awaken that girl again :D

Thank you, Paige! We used to, but we recently moved back to Arkansas, so the citrus is limited, but the dairy options are definitely much better :)
