Rum Runner

Rum Runners were invented at the Holiday Isle Tiki Bar in the late 1950s, when a new bartender took over and discovered he was overstocked on Hirim Walker blackberry brandy, banana liqueur, and light rum; the drink is named after the felonious former inhabitants of the Florida Keys, as well as the generous portions of rum used in the recipe. Sweet and fruity, these babies pack more than just punch.


  • Two cups ice
  • One ounce (30 mL) pineapple juice
  • One ounce (30 mL) orange juice
  • One ounce (30 mL) blackberry liqueur
  • One ounce (30 mL) banana liqueur
  • One ounce (30 mL) light rum
  • One ounce (30 mL) dark rum or aged rum
  • Optional: one ounce (30 mL) of Bacardi 151 to float on top
  • Splash grenadine
  • Orange slice (optional)
  • Ounce (30 mL) of 151 Rum (optional)
  • To make by the gallon use 24oz of each ingredient
(Dark rum is strong and flavorful. Use more or less of it to taste.)

All you need to pour a shot of rum into a straw is a cheap, plastic pourer and a semi-steady hand. Otherwise, just float the rum on top of the finished drink. Bartenders in Key West have their own unique recipes for this drink. Feel free to experiment with different liqueurs, rums and juices. Here are three other options:


1/2 oz Blackberry Brandy,1/2 oz Banana Liq, 1/2 oz Lt rum, 1/2 oz Spiced rum, O.J. Sweet-n-sour.


Mix 1 1/2 Malibu Rum,1 oz Blackberry Brandy, O.J., Pineapple, splash cranberry. Best: Mix 1oz Bacardi lt, 1/2 oz Blk berry Brandy, 1/2 Banana Liq, splash grenadine, splash lime, top it with a 1 oz float of Meyers Rum. All of these can be shaken and on the rocks or put on ice and blended. Each is better with a Meyers float on top.


1 1/2 oz White Rum 1/4 oz Banana Liqueur 1/4 oz Blackberry Brandy 1/2 teaspoon Grenadine 5 oz Sweet & Sour Mix Shake with ice and strain in to cocktail glass Add cherry with small lime wedge on stick for looks but this is the original
