How To Make A Bob Marley Cocktail

The Rasta-inspired Bob Marley drink can be made several ways, including either frozen or flaming! This delicious and refreshing drink is a favorite among visitors and is the perfect treat to make you feel the Jamaican vibes anywhere in the world.


The frozen Bob Marley drink — pictured below — is the signature cocktail at the Secrets Montego Bay resorts in Jamaica. They have shared their official recipe on their blog,  and it calls for light rum, blue curacao, orange curacao, strawberry daiquiri mix, fresh mango, sweet and sour mix, lime juice and ice.

How to make it.

First, start by making the red portion of the drink by combining 1 oz light rum, 4 oz strawberry daiquiri mix and 1 cup of ice in a blender. Mix ingredients and pour into the bottom of the glass.

Next you will need to combine 1 oz of rum, 3 oz of chopped mango, 1 ½ oz of sweet and sour mix and one cup of ice in a blender. Mix ingredients together to create the yellow portion of the drink. Pour only half of the mixture into the glass.

Take the remaining drink mixture and blend with ½ oz of blue curacao to create the green portion of the drink. Pour into the glass.

The flaming variation on the Bob Marley drink is often consumed as a shot. To make this drink, you’ll need a large shot glass and:

  • 1/3-ounce grenadine
  • 1/3-ounce rum, 151 proof
  • 1/3-ounce creme de menthe
Directions: Pour the grenadine on the bottom, the creme de menthe in the middle and the rum on top. If you’re feeling daring enough to try it – light the rum, place a straw all the way in the bottom of the shot-glass and drink fast! Stop once the flames are inside the straw.
