Rum Martini is one of the most enjoyable cocktails I’ve ever had, however the past “gin and vermouth” mix is nothing more than an “oldies but goodies”. But as our blog is made around Malibu rum drinks, let’s try to sketch a recipe for Rum Martini, a variation made with Malibu rum. Also, let’s add more recipes for people to choose the one that fancy their tastes better, but all of these will have one thing in common: the Rum Martini cocktail should be well chilled before drinking it, as well as the glass in which you will serve the drink.
The easiest and oldest recipe is, as I was saying, 1 ½ oz rum and 1 ½ tsp dry vermouth. Fill have of a mixing glass with ice cubes, stir and pour into a cocktail glass. Garnish with an olive and serve cold.
The second Rum Martini recipe contains this time some orange bitters. 2 oz Malibu rum, ½ oz dry vermouth and 2 dashes orange bitters. Chill, pour into a chilled glass and serve garnished with an olive.
Here comes my favorite, the Caribbean Martini! This requires a little more preparation while you should get a cherry and moisten the glass’ edge, yummy! Use 1 oz vodka, 1 oz Malibu coconut rum, pineapple juice and mango puree. Blend the mix with ice, pour in the Martini glass moisten with the cherry, garnish it with a cherry and enjoy!
Our fourth Rum Martini cocktail comes under Almond Joy name, or at least I consider the Almond Joy a Martini, am I wrong? Use 3 oz Malibu rum, 1.5oz amaretto, 1oz kahlua ,1 oz chocolate liqueur and throw away some vodka above. Mix all the ingredients into a shaker with ice, stir into glasses and garnish with some nice chocolate syrup.
There are a few more Rum Martini recipes that I enjoy, made with Malibu coconut rum, however these four I consider the best a mouth can taste. Enjoy responsible, right?
