We aren't going to lie to you. Rum cocktails are among the most delectable mixed drinks available. Rum is frequently used with sweet and tart fruity flavours to create easy-to-drink cocktails (sometimes too easy). This sugar cane-based liquor first gained popularity in the United States in the 1700s and then all over the world, and we've been drinking it ever since. So, no matter what the occasion or season, there's a rum drink for you.


1. Nevada Cocktail

This sour fruity cocktail is a great way to cool off on a hot summer day. But also an amazing fix for winter nights. A classy drink can be made with a great blend of dark rum, fresh lime and grape juice, and a splash of sugar.



  • 1/2 cup dark rum
  • 1/2 cup grapefruit juice
  • 1/4 cup lime juice
  • 2 teaspoons superfine sugar


  1. Pour the ingredients into a cocktail shaker with ice cubes.
  2. Shake well.
  3. Strain into a chilled cocktail glass.

  • 1/4 cup of orange liqueur
  • 1 tablespoon of lime juice
