Corn 'n' Oil

Main Spirit Rum - Blackstrap
Difficulty Medium
Technique Shaken

For a classic mix of Caribbean flavours, you really can’t go past a Corn ‘n’ Oil. The “oil” in the Corn ‘n’ Oil is a reference to blackstrap rum, which sits atop this cocktail like a puddle of petroleum.


  • 1 oz. 30ml Rum, Dark
  • 1.5 oz. 45ml Falernum
  • 0.5 oz. 15ml Lime Juice
  • 3 dash 3 dash Angostura Bitters
  • oz. 0ml Rum, Blackstrap
Display: oz. ml.




Although historically this is stirred, if you shake the first three ingredients, it allows air to get into the cocktail and helps incorporate and brighten the citrus. Strain into a Collins glass, then add crushed ice.


Float the black strap and bitters over the top of the drink. Stir to combine before drinking.
