The Rum Runner Tiki drink supposedly dates back well into the 50’s. There are a variety of recipes roaming the internet. Some are all equal measurements for each ingredient. That makes the recipe super easy to remember, but not necessarily balanced with all the flavors. Some recipes contain light rum and dark rum. Other Rum Runner adaptions are built on the rocks for quick, easy preparation.
The Frozen Rum Runner below was created specifically for blending. It contains a little extra crème de banana for deep, sumptuous tropical feel. Pomegranate molasses is used in place of ordinary grenadine. This helps bind the lovely fruited flavor together throughout the blending process so the Frozen Rum Runner does not become too watered down with the addition of extra ice.
