4 Classic Cocktails to Make: White Rum Edition

4 Classic White Rum Cocktails
4 Classic White Rum Cocktails

Guess what? Me and @rachesblogs have been back at the cocktails.

This week, we decided to go tropical and try some white rum.

The results, if I do say so myself, weren’t too bad.

Much like the ‘Gin Cocktails’ blog, I won’t bore you with a big silly intro. We both know it’s all about the booze…



Probably the most famous white rum cocktail out there, it’s also one of the tastiest. Drink this on the balcony during a summer thunderstorm for that true Caribbean feeling.

Classic Mojito

50ml white rum, straight into a glass

2 teaspoons of sugar

A few wedges of lime

A handful of mint leaves

Mash it all together in the bottom of the glass. I mean reaaaallly crush it up.

Stir the messy paste-thing you’ve created.

Add crushed ice to the glass.

Top up with soda (sparkling) water.

Garnish with a sprig of mint.

(Tip: you can add strawberries during the ‘mashing’ stage to make a Strawberry Mojito. @racgesblogs fave.)

Strawberry Daiquiri:

Girly, pink, fruity. It’s a good one, chaps.

50ml white rum straight into a blender

25ml simple syrup

25ml lime juice

Handful of strawberries (no exact science here, just however many you’d like.)

Loads of ice

Blend it all up until smooth

Pour into a fancy glass (needs to be a fancy one), and garnish with a strawberry


Pina Colada:

If you like getting caught in the rain…

50ml white rum straight into a blender

125ml pineapple juice

50ml coconut cream

A load of ice

Blend. Blend, bend, blend.

Pour into a glass and garnish with any fruit you want (it's supposed to be pineapple, but we didn’t have any…)


Cuba Libre:

I know this is ‘technically’ just a rum and coke. But for a proper Cuba Libre, it’s all about the rum to coke ratio – as well as adding lime juice for that extra kick. A real Cuban classic.
