The black stripe cold rum cocktail is a fantastic drink with a surprise ingredient - molasses! If you are looking for something sweeter, add honey; if not, just enjoy the molasses and dark rum all on their own over crushed ice.


  • 4 ounces of dark rum
  • 1 tablespoon of molasses
  • 1 tablespoon honey (optional)
  • 2 tablespoons hot water
  • crushed ice


Dissolve the molasses (and optional honey) in the hot water. Stir in the dark rum. Pour over crushed ice.
