4 Classic Cocktails to Make: White Rum Edition


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…


Mojito:


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 Mojito

Strawberry Daiquiri:


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

Strawberry Daiquiri

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…

Pina Colada

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.

Cuba Libre

Fill a glass with ice

50ml white rum

100ml coke

25ml lime juice

Garnish with a 4 lime wedges

So, there you go, another 4 cocktails to make during these sunny lock-down days. Hope you enjoy.


Make sure to check out www.rachesblogs.co.uk for writing that, unlike mine, is actually good…
