4th of July Cocktails and Recipes from Iconic Americana Spiced Rum

Today I am sharing a few recipes with all of you given to me by the PR company that
represents Sailor Jerry. These all look delicious and are perfect for a backyard barbecue this summer.

For lighter summertime fare, the Backyard Tea – made with lemonade and iced tea – strips the innocence and adds a bite to the classic barbeque beverages. Easy to make and great for group, it can batched and served as a punch so guests can serve themselves -- and you can focus on manning delicious burgers and steaks searing on the grill.
Back Yard Tea Recipe

2 parts Sailor Jerry
1 part iced tea
2 parts lemonade
Glass: highball

Method: Add ingredients to in ice-filled glass and garnish with a lemon wedge.

Made with a spicy combination of ginger beer, pilsner, Tabasco and our beloved Sailor Jerry, the ingredients aptly explain its name – The Hellfire. Not for the faint of heart, this cocktail - a place where sweet, spicy, and salty come together harmoniously – can also provide a much needed “hair of the dog” the morning following a successful summer celebration.
Hellfire Recipe

1 part Sailor Jerry
2 dashes Tabasco sauce
¼ of a fresh lime
1 part ginger beer
Pilsner beer of favourite larger beer
Glass: beer glass

· Squeeze quarter of a lime into beer glass.
· Fill with Ice
· Add Tabasco, Sailor Jerry and ginger beer
· Top with beer

Sailor Jerry, not only limited to cocktails, can be included in all aspects of your grill out! By adding a Sailor Jerry spice to your BBQ sauce or mixing it into your hamburger meat to help with caramelization on the grill, the liquid has more uses than you would ever imagine.


In a medium pot, add 1 liter Sailor Jerry Rum,

4 to 5 quartered oranges, 3 lemons and 2 limes
3 – 4 tablespoons of mixed fruit juice concentrate optional)

Reduce at a rapid boil by about 75% or until slightly thickened, strain and let cool

Pick your favorite brand of BBQ sauce. In a new pot bring desired amount of BBQ sauce to a slow warm adding the Sailor Jerry Rum mixture a little at a time. For us, about 5/6 parts BBQ to 1 part rum mixture worked out well but taste along the way to see how you like it Tasty on ribs and pulled pork!!
