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.Sources: tommybahama.com; tommybahamarum.com
