Ever noticed how most drinks with rum call for a few different kinds?
This is no exception.
The recipe below is in parts not ounces since it works best made in a large batch as punch. Add a dash of bitters per number of drinks you make. ( If only making one drink then it should be one ounce total liquors per two ounces juice etc.) The proportions for the juice mix are one part pineapple to one part orange to a quarter part lemon juices mixed together.
- 1 part black strap rum
- 1 part clear rum
- 4 parts juice mix
- 1/2 part grenadine
- dash bitters per drink
Mix everything together and pour into a pitcher or glass filled with ice.

Now that’s a cocktail!! Is it Friday yet?!
I love the name! What is the difference in taste of black strap rum? I am ready for Friday over here Caroline…I think we should be follow Greg’s lead. 😉
Black strap is really molasses-flavored and much heavier.
I only drank Rum Swizzles once – it was on a boat day-trip when we were in Bermuda (years & years ago). They had a small band playing songs like ‘My Wild Irish Rose’ etc. The young crowd stayed in the front of the boat as far away from the music as we could. I stuffed towels into the speakers and drank much more than my share of Rum Swizzles!! Thanks for posting the recipe – I had no idea the drink included Black Strap Rum!!
