Nassau’s Graycliff has many claims to fame: it’s the city’s oldest hotel and boasts a 175,000-bottle wine cellar that’s the third largest in the Western Hemisphere. But they’re no slouches when it comes to rum-related matters either, offering a rum-and-cigar tour that combines rolling your own with a five-flight rum tasting. Whip up a tumbler or two of their classic rum punch and you’re sure to feel the island spirit – literally!

Graycliff Special


1 ounce light rum

½ ounce banana rum

½ ounce coconut rum

½ cup pineapple juice

2 teaspoons grenadine

1 teaspoon freshly squeezed lime juice

ice cubes

1 tablespoon dark rum

1 maraschino cherry, for garnish

1 thinly sliced orange round, for garnish


In a cocktail shaker, combine light rum, banana rum, coconut rum, pineapple juice, grenadine, and lime juice. Fill with ice and shake until combined and slightly frothy. Fill a highball glass with ice; pour the rum mixture over ice. Garnish with cherry and orange slice. Top with dark rum and serve immediately.
