Coecoei is centuries old, first made by coastal natives in the Caribbean. Arundel White Rum is from oldest continuously operated rum distillery in the western hemisphere. Key lime has been cultivated in the Western Hemisphere since the 1500's.

Arundel White Rum, one ounce
Juice from 1/2 Key lime
Mixer (Sierra Mist, Sprite or 7 Up)
Garnish with the other half of the lime
Squeeze the juice from 1/2 key lime into an eight ounce glass. Add Coecoei and Arundel White Rum, stir. Partially fill the glass about 3/4 of the way with crushed ice. Top off with mixer. Garnish with lime.
Sit back and enjoy a drink with a flavor that harkens back to the Age of Exploration and the Golden Age of Sail.

Complex to say the least. I am a self-proclaimed couture mixologist. I came up with this because I had the crazy idea to make a drink with both apples and jalapenos. I know it sounds weird but if made properly the flavors will layer properly and you wont

Very filling and thick Colada, almost a meal in itself, but very very nice! Plenty of similar recipes, but I love this one.
Mount Gay Eclipse Barbados Rum
3-4 Frozen sliced bananas, 2 cups Pineapple juice, 3/4 cup Mount Gay Eclipse, 3/4 cup Double Cream, 3/4 cup Coconut milk, Blend in Smoothie maker. Add more Rum for an extra kick, but add more frozen banana to maintain its thick milkshake texture.

Caribbean Brain Freeze10 votes Tweet This
This is a truly refreshing and enjoyable rum drink. However, I must caution you that this drink should be enjoyed slowly. If consumed too quickly, it will most certainly give you a brain freeze.
2 oz Flor de Cana 4yo White Rum Extra Dry
¾ oz Galliano (liqueur)
1 Large Scoop or 1/3 cup lemon or lime sherbe
3 oz Quality Cream Soda
1 Key Lime Cut in Quarter Sections
Place Sherbet in blender. Add Rum and Galliano. Then add Cream Soda. Cover and blend for only four or five seconds. Pour and garnish with a section of Key Lime. Add a large diameter straw. Drink Slowly and Enjoy!!!
