Bahama Mama Recipe

The Bahama Mama is a vibrant and fruity cocktail that transports drinkers to the sunfilled shores of the Bahamas with its tropical blend of flavours.

Our Bahama Mama recipe combines rum, coconut liqueur, and a mix of orange and pineapple juices, accented with a splash of grenadine for sweetness and colour.

With its tropical taste, the Bahama Mama is my cocktail choice for beach parties, summertime gatherings, and simply chilling by the pool.


  • 1 oz or 30 ml dark rum
  • 1 oz or 30 ml coconut liqueur (like Malibu)
  • 1/2 oz or 15 ml overproof rum (optional, for a more potent version)
  • 2 oz or 60 ml orange juice
  • 2 oz or 60 ml pineapple juice
  • 1/2 oz or 15 ml Grenadine
  • Ice cubes
  • Orange slice and cherry (for garnish)


  1. Prep: Fill a shaker with ice cubes.
  2. Combine: Pour in the dark rum, coconut liqueur, rum (optional), orange juice, pineapple juice, and grenadine into a shaker.
  3. Mix: Shake well until the mixture is thoroughly chilled.
  4. Pour: Strain into a large glass filled with ice.
  5. Garnish: An orange slice and a cherry.


The Bahama Mama is not only a feast for the palate but also for the eyes, often served in a highball or hurricane glass to showcase its beautiful layers of colour.

The cocktail’s name and tropical flavours reflect the laid-back, festive culture of the Bahamas, making it a staple drink at vacation resorts and cruise ships.
