Making Key West's Favorite Drink, the Rum Runner

Destination: Key West, Florida                                   

How Did The Rum Runner Come to Exist?

Where did it start, you ask? History says the famous drink dates back to the 1950's. The Story goes that Holiday IsleTiki Bar in IslamoradaFlorida (now The Postcard Inn) had an excess of rum and certain liqueurs that needed to be moved before the arrival of inventory. The bartenders created a very tasty concoction with this excess and Viola! The The Rum Runner was born! They named the drink after the real "Rum Runners" that inhabited the Florida Keys in the early days!

Taste of Key West's Favorite Drink Even When You're Not on the Island


Where did it start, you ask? History says the famous drink dates back to the 1950's. The Story goes that Holiday IsleTiki Bar in Islamorada, Florida (now The Postcard Inn) had an excess of rum and certain liqueurs that needed to be moved before the arrival of inventory. The bartenders created a very tasty concoction with this excess and Viola! The The Rum Runner was born! They named the drink after the real "Rum Runners" that inhabited the Florida Keys in the early days!

As with all great recipes, they are passed along and Key West adapted it as their official drink. Most recipes are altered by using different amounts of the same ingredients.  Sometimes an ingredient may be substituted or changed and the recipe will remain intact.The rules of the recipe are meant to be altered to suit your individual taste, but you can't change the main ingredients...RUM...and still call it a rum runner!

The following recipe is a true Rum Runner recipe. It's not surprising that the Rum Runner recipe will be one
of the most-flavorful, easiest, and favorite cocktails you will make. Try a "Rum Runner" at your next get together...and of course, enjoy! Click here to Find your Favorite Key West Bar to enjoy your Rum Runner.

The Rum Runner Recipe

Ingredients: 
Two cups ice
1 oz pineapple juice
1 oz orange juice
1 oz blackberry liqueur
1 oz banana liqueur
1 oz light rum
1 oz dark rum or aged rum
Splash grenadine
Optional: one ounce of Bacardi 151 to float on top
Orange slice (optional)
To make by the gallon use 24oz of each ingredient

To Mix:

Blended:

Fill your blender with the ice.
Add all of the liquid ingredients.
Blend the contents until smooth.
Pour into a Hurricane glass and garnish with an orange slice.
Add the 151 floater!

On the Rocks:

Fill glass with ice. Add the liquid contents. Pour the 151 in the straw or on the top. This is my favorite way to enjoy the Rum Runner. Enjoy!

No Hurricane glass available, no problem. Anything that will hold liquid will work!

    There is so much quirky Key West is famous for: from the live music and party scene on Duval Street, to the incredible local and international cuisine, to the breathtaking sea and sunset views, and rich history. But Key West is also a treasure cove of hidden gems, and there are plenty.  Here are just a few of ours…

    1. Kayaking The Backcountry, Mangroves and Shallow Waters of Key West & Lower Keys
    shallow water kayak tours offer an easy paddling experience for all ages

    2. Ft. Zachary Taylor State Park

    There is a magical little spot on the West side of Key West that not too many people know about. Sure, it is located on the maps, but most people are too busy joining in the raucous party on Duval Street, or on a jet ski, or enjoying the better-known sites. But this park is a beautiful and peaceful place off the beaten path, where you can enjoy nature trails, a butterfly garden, lots of shade, picnic tables, and even some original Civil War era cannons, along with the original structure of the fort. What you won’t find? People hawking souvenir tee shirts, drunks stumbling out of bars, and jugglers asking for money…. http://www.fortzacharytaylor.com/

    3. Nancy Forrester’s Secret Garden

    It really is a secret because it is in a residential neighborhood, with no big signgs. You have to look for the place. But once you find it, you will be delighted to spend time in this small, quiet, exotic bird sanctuary. This is a hands-on birding experience where you can get very close and sit with the birds and even hold them. Nancy, the guide, is a sweet woman who loves birds and what she does, and the door fee goes to supporting the birds. http://www.nancyforrester.com/

    4. The Gardens Hotel

    Trip Advisor has named it “The Most Beautiful & Secluded Hotel in Key West,” and with good reason. On the Historic Register of National Places, the hotel boasts luxury guest suites nestled among some of Florida’s oldest and most beautiful tropical gardens. The accolades are generous all over the internet, from “Best customer satisfaction,” “most romantic,” and “Best hidden value,” to being listed in the book 1,000 Places to See Before You Die. http://www.gardenshotel.com/index.htm


    5. The Unmarked Home of Tennessee Williams

    While everyone is taking the trolley over to the Hemingway House museum, grab a map and ride your bike over to 1431 Duncan St.. There you’ll find the unmarked house of literary legend Tennessee Williams. The writer’s place included a swimming pool and a writing room he called the “Mad House.”  While you are on the writer’s hunt, you can also check out late poet Elizabeth Bishop’s clapboard house that she once owned on 624 White Street and several of the other properties Hemingway was known for frequenting.
