Make Your Very Own “Rum Diaries” Cocktails!

In Hunter S. Thompson’s novel-turned-movie The Rum Diary, Johnny Depp’s character spends a lot of time drinking…specifically rum.
So when mixologists Paul Monahan and Rachel Furman wanted to give a nod to the upcoming film, they looked to capture the exciting and somewhat crazy nature of the characters, as well as honor the unique author behind the story. 
Monahan and Furman, US Brand Ambassadors for Sailor Jerry Rum, have shared their recipes for “Hunter’s Punch” and “Etcetera”, below.  And if you happen to be in NYC, you can order these cocktails at Mother’s Ruin (18 Spring St). 


Hunter’s Punch

* 1.5 part SJ

* 2 part POM juice

* .5 part lemon

* .5 part champagne

At the bottom of your punch bowl, add POM juice and lemon juice. Stir slowly with ice. Add rum and stir some more. Slowly add champagne while stirring. Keep punch cool with minimal ice. Serve chilled in desired glass.


* 1.5 part Sailor Jerry Spiced Rum

* .75 part fresh lime juice

* .25 part homemade cinnamon allspice syrup

* 1 part pineapple juice

Add ingredients to rocks filled mixing glass.  Shake.  Strain into old fashioned glass.

Serve down in glass.  Pineapple juice shaken should give cocktail a nice froth.
