How to make a Bacardi Volcano cocktail is a fairly simple process. First and foremost, Bacardi 151 is used. Any other rum brand would not make it a Bacardi Volcano cocktail. Bacardi Superior Rum originated in 1862. It is aged from one to two years in special selected oak barrels. The color is clear, the taste is smooth and dry in flavor. There are hints of vanilla and aromas of almonds and tropical fruits. During the prohibition, affluent Americans were flying to Cuba to join in the Bacardi festivities. Even Pan American Airlines had a slogan “Fly to Cuba and Bathe in Bacardi”. So, before a trip to Cuba is necessary, here is how to make a Bacardi Volcano.
The ingredients and items needed for the Bacardi Volcano cocktail are as follows:
- Bacardi 151 Rum
- Everclear alcohol
- Coca Cola
- 1 Lime
- 1 Jigger
- Old Fashioned glass
This is a mixture made directly in the serving glass.
Follow these steps for preparing the Bacardi Volcano.
- Squeeze the juice of half a lime into the Old Fashioned glass

- Next a ½ glass of Bacardi 151 Rum is added
- Top the drink with 1 jigger of Everclear alcohol

A couple of tips though on indulging yourself or someone else with a flaming drink. The best way is just to enjoy the view of the flaming cocktail and let the flame extinguish by itself. Be careful not to let your lips touch the hot glass. You can wait a moment for the glass rim to cool or use a cocktail straw to sip.
