Cruzan Rum
Maryse Chevriere

The first time that I had a Cruzan Confusion was while devouring perfectly seasoned and moist rotisserie chicken at La Reine, a fantastic outdoor chicken shack located on the island of St. Croix. Opting out of a more typical rum punch, the bartender recommended this powerful beverage to cool me down while I waited for my order of chicken and Johnny cakes.

This version comes from eat@canebay, another must-try restaurant on the island. Made with four types of Cruzan rum, this colorful cocktail is not only delicious but also packs a punch.

Native to St. Croix, Cruzan rum has been produced on the island since 1760. To make the rum, Cruzan mixes high quality molasses with tropical rainwater, which, through fermentation, is turned into alcohol, resulting in the tropical-flavored rums used in the beverage below. A favorite drink of The Daily Meal office, try making this rum in larges batches for a summer barbecue or for a few favored friends. 



  • Ice
  • 1 ounce Cruzan Pineapple Rum
  • 1 ounce Cruzan Banana Rum
  • 1 ounce Cruzan Mango Rum
  • 1 ounce Cruzan Coconut Rum
  • Pineapple juice, to top
  • Splash of grenadine
  • Pineapple wedge or lime wheel, for garnish (optional)
  • Cherry, for garnish (optional)


Fill a 12-ounce glass with ice. Add the rums and top with the pineapple juice and grenadine. Stir and add garnishes if using.
