Drink Variations

Non-Alcoholic: The Bahama Mama cocktail can be crafted without alcohol by simply omitting the rum. Simply combine fruity elements like pineapple juice, orange juice, grenadine, and coconut cream, which can serve as a substitute for coconut rum.

Add Coffee Liqueur: You can try the traditional version features a splash of coffee liqueur, lending a distinctive and flavorful twist.

Frozen: Add more ice to turn your cocktail into a frozen drink. It’s perfect for hot summer days!

A standard alcoholic cocktail, like all alcoholic beverages, is not subject to assessment from a healthy eating perspective. All authoritative studies in the field of dietetics unanimously state that the only safe dose of alcohol is 0 grams. In addition to being essentially empty calories, which are present in any alcohol (by the way, pure alcohol is more caloric than carbohydrates. There are only 4 kcal in one gram of carbohydrates, while in one gram of alcohol - 7 kcal), this cocktail also contains a significant amount of simple carbohydrates, or in simpler terms - sugar (from juices and syrups). Therefore, whether to consume such drinks or not is a decision only you can make.
