Sailor Jerry Cocktail Bar
Sailor Jerry Spiced Rum, Cola Reduction, Clarified Lemon, Orange, Milk, Allspice.
Our Signature drink. The punch was created before the cocktail and was originally shared on board ships and vessels by the sailors. Meant to be subtle rather than strong, and to be drank until the bottom.
SJ Dark and Stormy
Sailor Jerry Spiced Rum w/ Ginger Beer, a twist of fresh lime & topped with bitters.
A timeless refreshing classic with a spiced rum twist
Sailor Jerry Spiced Rum, Fresh Basil, Raspberry, Soda.
Alongside the Swallow, the Red Robin is amongst Sailor Jerry’s most famous and classic tattoos. This cocktail is inspired by ingredients that this little Avian would come across on its excursions
Sailor Jerry Spiced Rum, Paradise Juice Mix, Coconut Cream, Orange Bitters.
A nod to the song chanted by Pirates “Sloop John B” as they hoped that better days would come on the rough seas. This drink celebrates sunshine, fresh island fruits, and of course rum!
