Rum Journal: How to Make a Rum Runner, Barbados Style


IT’S ONE of the most famous drinks (and, at one time, professions) in the Caribbean: the Rum Runner.

But how do you make one?

Recipes tend to vary slightly across the Caribbean (with one notable constant, naturally), but we thought we’d offer up a particular recipe from Barbados. The difference here? The rum.

This recipe for the Rum Runner comes from Barbados’ renowned Mount Gay rum, and utilizes the company’s classic Eclipse gold rum.

Here’s the recipe, courtesy of Mount Gay:


1oz Mount Gay Eclipse
1/4oz Blackberry Liqueur
1/4oz Creme de Banana Liqueur
2oz Orange Juice
1/2oz Grenadine
8oz crushed ice


Pour ingredients and crushed ice in a blender. Blend until slushy and pour into hurricane glass.
