Tommy Bahamas’ Peachy Keen Martini

Filled with fruit flavors, this martini will be loved by all of your party guests.


1 part Tommy Bahama Golden Sun Rum

1 1/2 parts peach schnapps

1/2 part passion-fruit juice

1 part mango juice

1 part fresh orange juice

Pour all ingredients into a cocktail shaker with ice. Shake 20 times and strain into a chilled martini glass.


Calypso Sun

This cocktail is like a piña colada without the mess of a blender.


2 parts Tommy Bahama Golden Sun Rum

2 parts pineapple juice

1 part fresh orange juice

1 part Coco Lopez

Mix all ingredients over ice in a hurricane glass.


Key Lime Martini

The sugar on the rim cuts the bite of lime in this cocktail. But go easy with this one or you might just forget your summer vacation altogether.


1 1/2 parts Tommy Bahama White Sand Rum

1 part premium orange liqueur

1 1/2 parts freshly squeezed key lime juice

1/2 tablespoon superfine sugar (to rim the glass)

Lime wheel

Coat the rim of a chilled martini glass with the sugar. Fill a cocktail shaker with ice and add the rum, liqueur and lime juice. Shake vigorously. Strain the mixture into the prepared glass, and garnish with the lime wheel.


Watermelon Mojito

A holiday party isn’t complete without fresh watermelon. Shake yours up with this twist on a cabana classic.


2 parts watermelon purée

8 fresh mint leaves

1/2 lime

1 1/2 parts Tommy Bahama White Sand Rum

2 parts sparkling water

1 part lemon-lime soda

Fresh mint


In a shaker, muddle the watermelon purée, mint and lime. Fill the shaker with ice, add the rum and shake all together. Add sparkling water and soda, stir, and pour into a highball glass garnished with the mint and watermelon.


Mix tip: One part is any equal part. Think of it as one measure of your jigger. For “1 part,” you would pour a full jigger, for “ 1/2 part,” pour half of the jigger full. Or if you are using ounces and the recipe calls for 2 parts rum and one part orange juice, use 2 ounces of rum and one ounce of orange juice.
