Rums for Pineapple Mojito

The best rum combination for the Pineapple Mojito is 1 oz (30 ml) each of Plantation 3 Stars white rum and Plantation Stiggins’ Fancy Pineapple rum. The latter is a particularly good rum flavored with the prized pineapples and produced in batches twice a year. Its deep and rich pineapple taste supports the fresh fruit in a pineapple Mojito and makes it really shine.

If you do not have the fancy rums, of course you can use the household staple that is Bacardi white rum. Having said that, can we urge you to chose something other than Bacardi white rum?

Simply because there are better rums than that, some even at a similar price point. Alternatively you can also with pineapple infused rums such as the one from Malibu.
