Barbados Cocktail

The Barbados Cocktail is a simple tropical cocktail featuring light rum, triple sec and a touch of pineapple juice. It’s lighter and less sweet than many similar cocktails.

Barbados Cocktail drink recipe with pineapple, rum and triple sec.

Note that this recipe calls for the drink to be stirred rather than shaken, even though it contains a fruit juice. Most drinks with fruit juice are shaken to get the thick juice dispersed throughout the liquid, and some people do choose to shake this one. But that “bruises” the rum – that is, the taste of it becomes sharper and the texture changes.
