If you’ve ever taken an island vacation, then you have probably had a Bahama Mama. Or perhaps you have heard the song, Kokomo, “Bermuda Bahama, come on pretty mama…” by the Beach Boys.

Red Lobster and Applebees also have their own infamous Bahama Mama drinks. It’s so easy to whip up yourself at home. I find that people can’t get enough of this alcoholic drink, even during the holiday season!

What is a Bahama Mama

It’s a pretty sweet cocktail. I like to balance out the sweet just a little by adding a little club soda, but that’s completely optional.

It’s a cocktail with a blend of fruit flavors and rum. It’s very popular if you take a cruise or a vacation throughout the Carribean islands.

The cocktail originated from the Bahamas and is rumored to be named after a dancer who went by the name Bahama.

What Does the Drink Taste Like?

It tastes like a refreshing day on the beach. The flavors of the coconut rum are very present. If you aren’t a fan of coconut, you may consider using white rum instead.

How Long Will the Cocktails Last? Can it Go Bad?

The juice in the punch is what will go bad first, within days. You can store leftover punch in mason jars. You can freeze it, too!
