A good drink to mix with Bacardi depends widely on personal tastes and preferences. However, experienced bartenders and other connoisseurs usually offer suggestions on drinks and other flavors to include with Bacardi. Their mixes may include anything from soda to fruit juice.
For instance, bartender Del Mendez, the head bartender for the Rooftop Cabana Club and Spartico at the Mayfair Hotel & Spa in Coconut Grove, suggests drinks such as the Cuba libre that simply mixes Bacardi with cola garnished with a lemon wedge. The tropical punch mixes Bacardi with a variety of fruit juices including orange and pineapple. The Miami vice takes a bit more work as it combines a strawberry daiquiri with a pina colada both made with Bacardi Superior Light Rum.
When looking for a good drink to mix with Bacardi, the variety of Bacardi such as dark rum, gold rum and spiced rum makes a difference in what type of drink works best. For instance, a blue Bohemian mixes Bacardi white rum with Becherovka herbal liqueur, Blue Curacao liqueur, orange juice and tonic water. However, a Pensacola bushwacker uses Bacardi black rum combined with cream of coconut, half and half, Kahlua coffee liqueur, creme de cacao and vanilla ice cream.
