Ry Tai, Rum Cocktail Recipe

Nothing makes us feel more like a booty-seeking pirate in the Caribbean than a rum cocktail. On a hot summer day when the sun is blazing (or on a cold winter night when you need to warm up), nothing cures the soul quite like rum. But don’t let this orange-juice colored cocktail fool you—if you make it right, it’s one potent and powerful blend that’s sure to get you going. Our favorite part? The fact that it includes both clear and dark rum…because life is hard and deciding on one rum over the other is a choice that no one should ever have to make.

It’s got all your island-inspired citrus flavors…orange juice, passion fruit juice, pineapple juice, and lime…and it’s meant to be served over ice, so it’s basically like an explosion of cold fruity flavors in your mouth (plus a lot of rum). The Ry Tai Cocktail is a cross between a Caribbean vacation and a summer fever dream. It’s cold. It’s fruity. It’s complex. It’s loaded with different types of booze. Pair your Ry Tai with jerk chicken cooked on the grill or go for the full-on luau spirit and enjoy one with a spit-roasted pig…it’s the perfect drink to pair with any summer barbecue.

Fun Fact: Most people would assume it’s called a Ry Tai because it has Rye whiskey in it. But actually, it’s called a Ry Tai because our intern’s boyfriends, name is Ryan and this is his specialty drink! haha!

Bar Tips: If you’re making a large batch of cocktails and it is impractical to shake or stir a drink with ice, then add water to your mix of alcohol and juices. A good guideline is to total up the volume of liquid in the cocktail, and add a ¼ of that total of water to the drink mix. This will add the proper level of dilution that’s achieved by shaking or stirring a drink. Remember, water is always a cocktail ingredient.
