Making The Perfect Key West Pina Colada

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!

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.
