After one sip, you’ll discover another occupational hazard.

To me the quintessential beach drink is the RumRunner. It has tons of flavor, cools you off and jumps starts any party. The best place to get one here where I live is on Ft. Myers Beach. The Lani Kai and Top-O-Mast rule these waters when it comes to the RumRunner.  They come frozen and they come strong.  At the Top-O-Mast you get to keep the glass.  Perk!  Really feeling up for a swash buckling good time?  Get the 151 Rum floater.  It’s like adding gas to a fire, so beware.  I have fallen prey to it’s persuasions before and paid the price.

There are more than a few ways to make the RumRunner, here’s the one I like.

RumRunner Drink Recipe

1/2 jigger Light Rum
1/2 jigger Dark Rum
1/2 jigger Blackberry Brandy
1/2 jigger Creme de Banana
1/2 jigger Orange Juice
1 jigger Sour Mix
1/4 jigger Lime Juice
1/4 jigger Pineapple Juice
1/4 jigger Grenadine
1/4 jigger 151 Rum
Lime wedge, garnish
Fill shaker with crushed ice.  Add first 9 ingredients.  Stir and strain over ice into rocks glass.  Float the 151 Rum on Top. Garnish.

I prefer mine frozen.  Just added everything in a blender. Float the 151 on top.  Raise and cheers friends.

Over and out from some where south.
