Rum 101

Few spirits can make a beach cocktail like rum can. Rum, which is made from sugar cane, is the key ingredient to many of the classic tiki bar cocktails: the Daiquiri, Mojito, Pina Colada, Dark ’N’ Stormy, Cuba Libré, you name it.

There are three main types of rum: white rum, dark rum, and spiced rum. Depending on the style, the alcohol content of rum can range from 20 percent alcohol by volume like in coconut rum, to 75.5 percent alcohol by volume like in Bacardi 151. Most of the well known rum brands like Captain Morgan and Bacardi make their own versions of each type of rum. Follow our rum guide for all of the best original and classic cocktails, as well as the best rums to buy.
