Our Bob Marley Frozen Cocktail Recipe

The Bob Marley Frozen Drink is a colorful and tropical rum-based cocktail that is perfect for a beach vacation or for feeling like you’re on an island getaway. The drink is layered with the colors of the Rastafari flag – red, yellow, and green, and is named after the famous reggae musician who was a key supporter of the Rastafari movement.

The cocktail has 7 ingredients so it’s not for the beginner bartender, and you’re going to have to have a pretty well stocked bar to make this correctly. The drink is actually the signature cocktail at Secrets Resorts & Spas which are primarily found in the Caribbean, so it makes perfect sense they’d use a rum based tropical flavored drink like this one.
