6 Rum & Juice Cocktails: In Partnership With Belgrove Rum
When it comes to crafting exquisite cocktails that tantalise your taste buds and transport you to a tropical paradise, there's nothing quite like the combination of premium rum and vibrant fruit juices.
The History of Rum Cocktails
Rum cocktails trace their origins back to the Caribbean in the early 17th century. Rum, often referred to as "kill-devil" in its early days, was initially a rough and unrefined spirit produced by sugarcane plantation workers. As the distillation process improved, so did the quality of rum, and it soon found its way into the hands of seafarers and pirates who popularized its consumption.
The first recorded cocktail, the "Bumbo," emerged in the 17th century, combining rum with sugar and spices. The late 19th and early 20th centuries marked the heyday of rum cocktails, with classics like the Daiquiri, Mojito, and Mai Tai gaining popularity. Prohibition-era speakeasies further propelled the rum cocktail's fame, with tiki bars and exotic concoctions such as the Zombie and Pina Colada becoming iconic staples. Today, rum cocktails continue to evolve, blending tradition with innovation, and remain beloved worldwide for their tropical flair and diverse flavour profiles.
These cocktails combine the premium Belgrove Rum and our exquisite Frobishers Fruit Juices for the perfect blend of flavours, and are a testament to the artistry of mixology and the harmony of quality ingredients.
