I have to apologize to my community that it has taken this long to put up this amazing Turmeric Coconut Rum cocktail on my feed. Things have been wild at LC, and the thing is, this pregnancy has not helped with the energy. But needless to say, this was a #NoDrinksWasted entry that deserves all the praise! This Rum cocktail comes packed with flavour like Campari, pineapple, lime and coconut. You’ll want in on this, trust me!Jump to Recipe
After a fun year of #DrinkYourGram on my social platforms, I wanted to create cocktails with you in mind. Many of you likely have random bottles or ingredients around the house that you don’t want to go to waste, so why not use them in a cocktail?
For this particular week, I had a community reach out wondering how she can use some turmeric in her mixology. Other than the fact that turmeric loves to stain, in measured dosages it can go a longgg way. I used a bit of powder with some other strong flavour characters to build this Turmeric Coconut Rum Cocktail.

Something I learned through the industry is that rum and Campari (especislly a splash in a pina colada) can go a long way! They’re a great flavour pairing together, and worth experimenting with. Now if you don’t love Campari, I would cut this out of the recipe. But it really does go a long way, AND adds those bitter attributes to the cocktail to combat the sweetness. If Campari is omitted, I would increase the lime a touch (by a ? or ¼ oz).
Choosing your rum for this cocktail was fairly easy, but I would NOT deviate from their style. Go for a lighter style rum like the Havana Club 3 yr used here, or a Flor de Cana. Avoid anything heavily aged or infused from oak. The brighter it is, the better. I’d even say Cachaca or Rhum Agricole would go a long way. Or even a Pisco!!
I’m sure you’re as thirsty as I am by this point. Let’s get to that recipe shall we?
