Creating a signature drink bar in your home is such a fun (and admittedly easy) way to add a little extra to a party or get together. When you want to enjoy your guests instead of constantly serving them, creating a signature drink bar like this Rum & Coke setup is the perfect way for them to have some fun making their own drinks. The best part is that they can customize each drink to their own preferences. 

Rum and Coke Signature drink bar

A Bacardi Rum and Coke bar is the perfect choice for any fun party you’re hosting. Imagine music, laughter and a fun delicious drink customized to your favorite flavors! I love the combo of Bacardi Superior and Coca-Cola® Mini Cans to create a classic Rum and Coke OR add some flavor enhancers to make your own fun drink. Bacardi is the world’s favorite and most awarded rum. A light tasting, and aromatic rum with fruity notes of apricot, lime, and coconut, it’s an extremely mixable spirit making it perfect to have on hand for any number of rum cocktails.

TIPS FOR CREATING A SIGNATURE DRINK BAR

A signature drink bar can be simple or more elaborate, but the key is to make it easy for your guests to access anything they’ll need to create their drink. Here are some tips for creating your own:

  • Add layers to your set-up with shelves, boxes or trays to make it easy for guests to access everything.
  • Glassware – set out any glassware you’ll need so that you don’t have to go searching your cupboards for more later. For this Rum and Coke bar you’ll want highball glasses.
  • Mix-ins – whatever type of bar you’re creating make sure to have placed out any mix-ins that you’ll need. Do all the prep ahead of time to make it easy. For this bar I have coconut syrup, grenadine and chocolate syrup. Place the bottles of syrup nearby so that when more is needed no one needs to ask where they are. I like to keep a basket under the table or on a shelf close by with all the “extras”.Rum and Coke Signature drink bar
  • Garnishes – don’t forget to add garnishes and picks!
  • Alcohol – display the alcohol you chose so that everyone knows what type you’re using. Since they’ll all LOVE the drinks they’ll want to be able to easily recreate it at home.Rum and Coke Signature drink bar
  • Ice – this is one thing you’ll probably want to monitor. Be sure to have plenty of ice. If needed, you can leave an ice chest filled with ice nearby.

Once your bar is set up and your guests arrive, they can start creating their own drinks. Here are the Rum and Coke recipes you can make with this fun bar.
