Submitted By

This is the official recipe for Windjammer Barefoot Cruises Rum Swizzles


  • 151 Proof Trinidadian Rum (Aged in an oak barrel aboard a tall ship until it is certifiably 200 Proof)

  • Freshest of fruit juices available (You may substitute to taste); Orange, Pineapple, Guava, Cranberry, & Grapefruit

  • Lime Juice

  • Grenadine Syrup

  • Caribbean Sunshine

  • Calypso music (Steel band or Reggae) or Jimmy Buffet

  • A Tall Ship (3 or 4 masted barquentine or schooner)

  • Directions:

    1. Start with the rum. Pour some into a pitcher, bucket, or barrel (as you see fit. Pour as much or as little as you want. Follow this chart for reference;

      - A little rum - Party.
      - A little more rum - PARTY!
      - A whole bunch of rum - PAAAAAAARRRTTYYYY!!!!!!!!!

    2. Add the fruit juice. The selection and quantity is up to you*. Orange and Pineapple usually make the best base so start with these. Add some Cranberry and/or Guava to take off the edge. Grapefruit juice will add a little bitterness.

      *If you use enough rum, the flavor will not matter because
      after one or two, you won't really taste anything anyway.

    3. Add some Grenadine Syrup for sweetness and color.

    4. Add some lime juice to soften the hangover.

    5. Hire a steel band or turn up the Jimmy Buffet tunes.

    6. For the full effect of this wholesome beverage, it should be consumed aboard the deck of a Windjammer Tall Ship in the Caribbean.
