Hey Mark! How do you make…

I was drinking in my favorite neighborhood bar last night with my bro Scott and our friend Terri, when I was given a great bartender compliment. I overheard the bartender on duty say “Let me ask Mark, he’ll know”, then she called out “Hey Mark! How do you make a Bahama Mama?”. Always nice to be respected amongst peers.

So I told her and the barely 21 girl who ordered it had two, so I guess the recipe was good. 🙂

For the record, here is the recipe I gave her:

Tiki’s Bahama Mama
1 1/2 oz coconut rum
3/4 oz light rum
1/2 oz creme de banana
dash of grenadine
pineapple juice
orange juice

In a hurricane or pint glass filled with ice, combine all ingredients using equal parts of pineapple juice and orange juice. Shake and serve with a fruit garnish if you like.

A couple variations that are damn tasty. There will be variety in a drink like this, but the consistent flavor is the coconut and pineapple.

Blended Bahama Mama
1 oz light rum
1 oz dark rum
1/2 oz colada mix
2 oz pineapple juice
1 oz orange juice

Fill a blender one-quarter with ice. Add ingredients. Blend and pour into your favorite tropical glass. Garnish with a pineapple wedge and cherry.

Banana Mama
1 oz light rum
1/2 oz dark rum
1/2 oz banana liqueur
1/2 oz cream of coconut
1 oz strawberries
1 oz pineapple juice

Fill a blender one-quarter with ice. Add ingredients. Blend until smooth and pour into a wine goblet.

Bahama Mama #2
1/2 oz dark rum
1/2 oz coconut rum
1/4 oz Kahlua® coffee liqueur
1/4 oz 151 rum
juice of 1/2 lemon
pineapple juice

In a Collins glass 3/4 filled with ice combine all ingredients and shake until frothy. Garnish with a cherry.

So there ya go, four similar but distinctive recipes!
